Granny Smith Raw Beet Salad

Raw beet salad

This Raw Beet Salad might seem healthy, but unsophisticated.  Well, take my word for it, this quick raw beet salad will not only give you a shot of energy but will also impress with complex flavors. 

Why not enjoy your vitamins in the most delicious way? Fiber, Folate (vitamin B9), Manganese, Potassium, Iron, and vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin E, Phosphorus, Potassium, B1, B2, B6, Biotin, Niacin, Pantothenic acid never tasted this good!

Keep in mind, that raw beets are not as sweet as their roasted counterparts. The addition of a tart apple like Granny Smith, delivers a lot of flavor and another source of acidity.

I love the texture of a raw beet. It is similar to an apple, but a bit more delicate. I bet, you will find it really pleasing. The toasted walnuts round up this salad with a great crunch!

Finally, the addition of cinnamon gives this salad an unexpected twist. These beets are savory and earthy. I suggest you rest this salad on a bed of arugula for a zesty affair.
