Easy Summer Recipes – Grated Raw Beet Salad

Yesterday, Sarah left me this message on facebook –

“Mavis, try this recipe: shred raw beets, raw carrots, chop a few nuts (cashews or almonds work well), add a handful of raisins (or currents), and squeeze a fresh orange over it all. It is AMAZING (and really good for you, and doesn’t taste all beety, IMO), and pretty.”

Have you ever tried a raw beet salad before?  Well I hadn’t, so I thought I’d give it a whirl.  The recipe itself was super easy to make.  And so was stuffing it in my big mouth. Yum. Yum. Yum.

So this is what eating real food tastes like.

I like it.


1 cup shredded beets
1 cup shredded carrots
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup raisins
the juice of 1 medium orange


Toss the beets, carrots, sunflower seeds and raisins together in a bowl and pour orange juice over the top. Divide salad between two plates and serve.

Thanks for the recipe Sarah!
