Crunchy Beet Carrot Slaw, a colorful healthy side dish you can feel good about serving!
Beets… You either love them or think they taste like dirt.
I fall in the “love them” camp and eat them as often as possible.
The most common way to enjoy beets is to roast them, so they have a soft interior, yet are crispy around the edges. Pickling beets is also a popular preparation method. However in the last few years, I’ve found I really love the taste and texture of raw beets.
Not only do you reserve all the nutrients by not cooking the beets, the firm carrot-like texture holds up well in salads and slaws. Even when made several days ahead!
Today’s Crunchy Beet Carrot Slaw is gluten free, vegetarian, and so good for you. It’s made with shredded raw beets, carrots, fresh mint leaves, golden raisins, and toasted almonds.
The shredded beets and carrots create the base of the slaw, while the mint, raisins and almonds provide bold flavor and crunch.
Toss the ingredients with a simple dressing seasoned with cumin, garlic, and ginger. Then serve the slaw right away, or refrigerate it for later.
Crunchy Beet Carrot Slaw is a great way to introduce beets to beet-newbies.
The vibrant flavor combination accentuates the earthy essence of the beets, truly making them shine!
