I love beets! And I love this salad. It is one of my favorite ways to eat beets. This salad is sweet and savory (and for me often a little spicy, with extra cayenne!) It’s a great way to eat beets raw to get their full nutritional power. Apples give this salad its sweetness and celery gives it a crunch. To me it is a simple and wonderful combination. I always make a lot when I make this and it’s one of the easiest salads to make! It is definitely one of my favorites and I hope you enjoy it as well.  

Beets are great blood cleansers and it is vitally important to keep the blood clean. From what I  have learned it seems that this is where most diseases of the body start. To me, it just makes sense that their bright magenta color is going to do something good in the body. Plus it’s fun to eat, like playing with paints at dinner.

When I buy beets I try to get them in bunches with the leaves still attached. The leaves are also very nutritious and great in salads and green smoothies.

    Having discovered beets only recently, I made this salad yesterday and I absolutely loved it. I also shredded a carrot into it and used lemon instead of vinegar for the dressing. It was so yummy! 🙂

    • Mmm, sounds good Jane. I love beets and carrots together too! Nice!!
