Easy Shredded Beet Salad (AIP, paleo)

Print

I once decided to do an AIP Whole30. This meant no mustard, which I always put on my beet salad! So instead I tried Pépé’s beet salad. Verdict? They are good. Real good. Possibly even better than my beets, but I’ll let you be the judge.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Th​is simple salad highlights one powerful​ and delicious​ root vegetable​ -- the red beet. It's rich in cancer-fighting, inflammation-lowering ​pigment ​compounds called ​​betalains​, as well as fiber, iron, manganese and ​the antioxidant ​vitamin C. ​Beets ​also ​contain ​a fair amount of f​olate​ --​ important for​ women planning to become or who currently are pregnant to help​ prevent birth defects.​ ​

The little bit of fat from the olive oil adds flavor, and ensures that your body can absorb and utilize every last nutrient. If you're watching calories, however, consider adding only 1 tablespoon of oil.

    OOoo raw beets! This looks so lovely and simple. I’m going to try putting toasted pumpkin seeds over this for some crunch and flavor and added zinc!
