Sara’s Kitchen Revelations – Raw Beets are Very Tasty

Posted on June 10th, 2012  |  Filed under Blog « Favorite Ingredients « New Discoveries « Useful Info

When I was grating my beets for a quick saute for The Husband I happened to taste a little bit of the shredded beets in the raw state

shredded gold and red beet salad

Shredded Beet Salad


and discovered that they had a very fresh, mild beet flavor with a lovely crunch.


Beets are the new cole slaw!!


Because I’d shredded two different colors I had a few styling choices . Either “arranged” in a pattern, or tossed.


All I needed to add was some balsamic vinegar, excellent olive oil and s and p.

What constitutes the “gold” part of the salad/slau?

I love them with rice vinager olive oil and a lite bit of orange juice.

I know you are going to love too.

Hi Sara, when the children were growing up, I used to throw grated beet and carrots on our salads. Just extra good stuff.

Love your posts,

That’s a first -snicker- … I’ve heard you say you never liked beets when you were younger that they tasted like ‘dirt’

That is correct, but actually, recently they have grown on me…

Shredded gold beets. They actually come in that color.
