Beet Slaw


I only recently tried a beet for the first time in my life, at the ripe old age of 30. I don’t know why I was so intimidated by them before, I supposed I just didn’t know what to do with them so it was easier to pass them by in the produce department and grab that bag of potatoes instead.


But I’m glad that I finally got the courage (God bless Pinterest) to quit Green Eggs and Hamming beets. Now, I will eat them on a train . . . etc.


This recipe for Beet Slaw is fast, delicious, and healthy.

3 beets
3 large carrots
3 large apples
3 small lemons
salt and pepper to taste
Peel your carrots, beets, and apples (coring apples). Shred carrots, beets, and apples. Mix your shredded ingredients together, squeezing the juice from your lemons into the mixture. Add a dash of salt and pepper to taste.
Using gloves to peel beets is the only sure fire way to avoid having stained fingers.

It’s really that simple. Naturally, I use my food processor’s shredding attachment to make this process faster and easier on the knuckles. (If you don’t have a high quality food processor I cannot recommend it enough. I use mine daily one way or another.)


Easy Beet Slaw


As this beautiful beet slaw marinates in your fridge it gets even yummier. My boys were attracted to it initially by the color (green makes them suspicious but red screams candy and all things delicious) and it’s sweetness sealed the deal.


What is your favorite way to prepare beets?

  1. I LOVE Beets. These sounds wonderful. So are the beets raw?? I love to roast them or even steam them. Then toss in a small amount of EVOO and grated Ginger root. So yummy!!!!! Thanks for posting.

  2. We like them sliced and grilled. Slice thin, brush with olive oil and grill until crispy on the outside and slightly soft on the inside. Sprinkle with salt. That sweet/salty thing is awesome. They are the best hot right off the grill. We eat them like appetizers while the meat is still cooking. Love the slaw idea though. Going to try it this weekend.
