Raw beets - great summer salad crunch!

By: Canadian Living
Beets - those deep purple, round root vegetables full of folate, vitamin C, potassium and fibre - not only roast up super sweet for a fall treat, they are also wonderful eaten raw! Raw beets add a delightful crunch to any salad, like this Tangy Matchstick Salad. tangy-matchstick-salad To prepare raw beets, simply peel and either cut into julienne pieces or grate using a box grater.

And if you've never had fresh beet juice, you should definitely try it! Tip: Wear plastic gloves when handling beets to avoid pink fingers (although the pink eventually washes off)!   Photography by Ryan Brook (top), Leah Kuhne (bottom)
