Tips for making the Best Shredded Beet Salad
- Use only fresh vegetables. I rarely doubt if frozen vegetables would give the same result.
- Dress this salad with a light vinaigrette such as my citrus salad dressing. If you use a creamy salad dressing for this salad, it will overpower the salad.
- Use a box shredder to shred the vegetables instead of a food processor. Please refrain from shredding the beets, apples, and carrots in a food processor.
Easy Variations of Beet Salad
- Citrus beets salad: add orange, grapefruit, or mandolin slices.
- Add protein: Though this shredded beet salad is vegan, you can serve it with any choice of protein for a more wholesome and filling goodness. Chicken, salmon, tofu will instantly elevate this dish!
- Fill up with Grains or Legumes; this salad is so good with quinoa on the side! It makes it more filling too!
