I am amazed, I don't actually normally like beets, my husband does and we had beets in the house so I looked and found this recipe for a night when we had a few friends over. I'm so pleased! We will definitely be making this again. It looks beautiful and tastes great. I also did not have raspberry vinegar in the house, but I mashed 2 strawberries with white vinegar and made everything else as instructed, it was delicious! Four of us at dinner expressed skepticism over beets, but everyone cleaned their plate!
This was a completely unique idea to me. I wouldn't have ever though of using raw beets. They went very well with the apple and carrots. I have always stayed away from beets. Didn't know what to do with them. This has opened up a whole other line of thought for me. I enjoyed this & will probably make it again in the future. Thank you very much for opening my eyes!
This is phenomenal!!! I was wary of eating raw beets and a little concerned about the spiciness of cinnamon. I even checked another website to verify that we can eat beets raw. I only did the beets and I used an immersion blender for the dressing to which I added some fresh strawberries for a little more fruitiness. I wore latex gloves and used the food processor for grating. I could've eaten all of it! Thank you for my new favorite beet salad recipe. Next time I'll add the carrots, apples and walnuts, but the beets and dressing alone are FAB!!!
