Day 30: The Beet Goes On

Yield: 3 people
Time (Start to Finish): 15 min

2 beets
2 med carrots
1 lemon zested and juiced
½ tsp salt
½ cup cilantro

1. Peel and grate the beets and the carrot into a big bowl
2. Add the lemon juice and zest, salt and cilantro and stir until combined.

Rating: 5 strawberries
Notes: BEST EVER! I think the only way to make this better would be to add a peeled grated granny smith apple. This dish reminds me and was inspired by the lovely Kyle out in Colorado. He made this for These United States and me on a cold snowy day while we were out visiting in Boulder. I’ve been craving it ever since! Its light, fresh and really makes you feel healthy and like your body is healing. Warning…beets make your bathroom time red, so if you think you are bleeding, you are not! And feel free to play with this one, add grapefruit instead of lemon, lime juice, or whatever! By the way, this salad was named by the lovely Maggie…
