Beet Salad

Beets are ideal in a salad, as a side dish, or as a soup for a starter. There’s no shortage of ways to enjoy this wonderful vegetable.

Your beet salad can taste even better if you let the flavours marinate for a day. You can also prepare enough bee salad to last for the week, eating a portion with every meal. Add nuts when serving for a crunchy addition to this healthy side dish.

Beets and your health

Beets contain folic acid, manganese, copper, iron, potassium, fiber, and magnesium. It is full of antioxidants too, and may even have anti-inflammatory properties. It is a great addition to a balanced diet. We use fresh red beet in this recipe, although if you’re pressed for time, canned beets can be used as well. Herbs and cinnamon are added to give a fresh and warm taste.
