My mom gave me a bag of raw beets the other day… and after staring at them for a week… I realized I should probably figure out what to do with them.
After looking through the search results for “beets” on google I found a recipe from the New York Times that swore even self-proclaimed “beet-haters” would love. And here it is…
Raw Orange-Beet Salad:
- ½ pound raw beets
- 1 lemon
- 1 orange
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Salt to taste
- Romaine lettuce
Peel your beets using a vegetable peeler. Then grate them in a food processor using the shredding blade.
Squeeze the juice from your lemon and the juice from ½ of the orange into your grated beets. Slice the other half of the orange and set aside. Then add your olive oil and salt and mix it all together.
Arrange a few leaves of romaine lettuce onto a plate. Top with your beet salad and a couple slices of your orange. Enjoy 🙂
