Orange-Beet Salad

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 🙂
