Grated Beet Salad.

Grated Beet Salad

This is a favourite little salad for when I’m craving something fresh and it works well as a side some grilled meat. It’s easy to make, especially if you have a food processor or mandolin grater/slicer! It will also keep well for a few days in the fridge so you can make extra and eat it for days!

Serves: 4-8
Serving size: ½-1 cup

Ingredients

  • 2 medium sized beets (approx. 230g/8oz)
  • 2 medium sized carrots (approx. 180g/6oz)
  • 1/3 cup parsley
  • Juice from 2 lemons (approx. 60 ml/2oz)

Directions

  1. Remove the top and tail from the beets and carrots (also peel if preferred)
  2. Grate the beets and carrots and place into a bowl
  3. Chop the parsley and add this to the bowl with the fresh lemon juice
  4. Stir well and serve. Enjoy!
