Raw Beet Salad

Ingredients

  • 1 pound red beets, trimmed and peeled
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallots
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint, chopped
  • 2 ounces crumbled goat cheese

Preparation

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinegar and mustard. Slowly whisk in the olive oil to make the dressing. Add the chopped mint and shallots and mix well.
  2. Using a mandoline, grater or the shredding blade of a food processor, shred the beets. Add the beets to the dressing and toss well to coat. Let the beets marinate at least 15 minutes. Garnish with crumbled goat cheese before serving.

Serving Suggestion

This sweet and tangy salad complements hearty main dishes like steaks and burgers (veggie or not). Add shredded carrots or Granny Smith apple for a sweeter salad.

      I didn't have my glasses on and thought you were making a "raw beef" salad!
