Pretty and Delicious Beet Salad.

I am a lover of beets!

From the flavor to the vibrant color to the bowl-full of health benefits, beets are a feast for the eye and the palette.

I’ve heard people say that when they eat beets all they can taste is the flavor of dirt. I’ll like to challenge that with this super simple, make your mouth water recipe!

Beets, a prehistoric food that grew along the coastlines of North Africa, Asia and Europe, are incredibly nutritious and are (as indicated by their red color) a blood builder and fortifier.

But wait, there’s more!

Beets are high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium (essential for healthy nerve and muscle function) and manganese (which is good for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas). Beets also contain the B vitamin folate, which helps reduce the risk of birth defects.

I grew up on beets in Europe, where they were served grated raw onto salads, served as a relish mixed with horseradish, cooked and grated then served warm as a side dish. We would also steam beet greens and eat them raw.
