Beet Blast Salad: (Zesty Lemon Twist)

A quick and easy salad of raw beets and carrots with a honey mustard dressing is perfect for busy weeknights!

I love eating grated raw beet salad because it’s so crunchy and fresh. It goes great with fish, chicken, or eggs and only takes about 15 minutes to make.

If you have some fresh beets, carrots, and a grater, you should give this simple salad a try. You can use store-bought spiralized beets, but they might not taste as fresh as grating them yourself.

Do You Have to Peel the Beets Before Shredding Them?

Do You Have to Peel the Beets Before Shredding Them?

Peeling the beets before grating them is super important for a tasty salad. It’s all about getting rid of that tough outer layer, so the beets are easier to eat and taste better.

Here’s how you do it: grab a vegetable peeler, hold the beet firmly in one hand, and peel away from top to bottom. Once you’ve got the skin off, you’re good to go.

Grate those beets up for your salad, and you’ll notice the difference they’ll be way more delicious and easier to enjoy. It’s a small step, but it amps up the flavour and texture of your salad.

How Many Days Can I Keep the Shredded Raw Beet Salad in the Fridge?

You can keep the grated raw beet salad in the fridge for 3 to 5 days in an airtight container. However, it’s tastiest and keeps its texture best if you eat it within the first 2 days.
