Raw beets are my new favorite unexpected pleasure! Seriously.  I’ve had plenty of cooked beets in my lifetime growing up with Russian parents.  Beets are a widely used staple ingredient of Russian cuisine.  I’ve always enjoyed the taste of raw beets juiced, but this salad is truly my first time enjoying the fabulous flavor, taste, crunch and gorgeous presentation of raw spiralized beets.

Spiralizing Fun

I made this salad for my family for the first time not long ago after receiving a huge bag of beets from someone’s garden.  I had just finished making my Vinegret (Russian Beet Potato Salad) the week before so I needed to use up the beets in a new exciting way.  Enter my brand new spiralizer , thanks to my husband.  I told my husband I wanted one of these funny little gadgets, but he laughed at me.  About a week later he surprised me with one he got on Amazon Prime Day. (And yes, he loves this salad, so he laughs no more…)

I was like a little kid with excitement using this awesome gadget for the very 1st time; the fun of doing it, watching it transform the beets into sweet spirals.  Only a food geek like me would truly get such pleasure out of it.

Raw Beet Beauty

I never thought I would get so excited about raw beets until the 1st time I made a raw beet salad.  I spiralized a couple beets, created a semi sweet vinaigrette with some balsamic vinegar and fresh mandarin juice and bam! My new love in fresh raw salad form.  Even my kids got a kick out of eating the beets this way which is always a huge bonus in my book!
