Beet salad.. better than it sounds.

beet salad

I don’t have a juicer so I’m always looking for other great ways to have a  body detox themed weekend and I am often wanting to jazz up my innards for the coming spring or summer weather. This recipe is one I found online by Preeti Guntecha, a nutriton and lifestyle coach whose article I came across on Mindbodygreen.com a website I love a lot. It’s full of awesome life, food and health tips for the everyday life of a person who is  both busy but interested in being continually healthy, both physically and spiritually.

Ingredients:

1 tsp cumin powder( optional) – Sea salt & ground pepper (optional)

2-3 beets

1/2 red cabbage, chopped

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

2 stalks of celery, chopped

1 cucumber

1 green apple, chopped

cilantro, chopped

Juice of 1 or 2 lemons

My Add-ons: I think adding a little bit of feta cheese,little mandarin orange slices, sliced red onion ( bc I am obsessed) and/or arugula would go really jazz this up. And it looks pretty too.

 

Process

Boil a pot of water and place the beets in the water. Let boil for 10-12 minutes until beets are cooked.

Peel and slice beets.

Mix all ingredients and toss well.

Add salt and pepper to taste. You may also add cumin powder for added flavor.

 

 

Hope you enjoy this awesome find that is super simple and easy to put together…plus we all need to eat more beets, don’t we? 🙂

Happy eating!
