We all know that we should eat our vegetables, but sometimes we get into a rut and it becomes boring. Changing up your routine can help you achieve this nutrition goal, so having new ideas for a simple and delicious salad can be helpful.
This salad calls for fresh shredded beets. Many people think they don't like beets because they have only had cooked or canned beets, but fresh beets are completely different. And since beets are loaded with nutrient - Vitamin C, magnesium, folate, calcium, and a fair bit of iron - they might be worth trying again!
