After biking 16 km today, I decided I needed a nice refreshing salad. I had some beets, potatoes, and other veggies I picked up at the market, so I thought a beet salad would be perfect!
It’s super hot outside and I needed something light and cool. Bonus: it’s vegan friendly, my favourite.
Me being the type who doesn’t really follow recipes…I just threw it together but it turned out great. Here’s what I did:
Boil 5 beets, 3 large carrots, and about 10 small red potatoes. Once they are cooked through, chop them up and put in a mixing bowl.
Chop up 3 pickles and some green onion. Add to the mix!
Time to add some spices and flavour.
I used paprika, pepper, himalayan sea salt, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and lemon juice. A dash here and a dash there works, add as much or as little as you like. I’m not one for measuring when it comes to something like a salad.
For some spice, I also added one chili pepper. They are small but mighty!
Toss and put in the refrigerator to cool. Wait about 30-45 minutes, then enjoy!
