      Tasty! Looks good too even with all the ingredients mixed as I did. DD (toddler) and I enjoyed this almost raw salad. I like it a whole lot. Yes my DD likes healthy food because that is what I feed her. I left out the lettuce as I feel it was just for presentation. Next time I would like to use an organic beet and carrot as they have so much more flavour and are more healthy but even with non-organic produce this was very good. I peeled the beet with a knife on a aluminum foil covered cutting board with my hand in a plastic bag. Kept my hand in the plastic bag for grating it too and no mess was made. I used unrefined extra virgin olive oil, organic apple cider vinegar, 1 small-medium garlic clove, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, plus the rest of the ingredients. I would like to make this again. Made for Veggie Swap 38 ~ September ~

      A tasty and healthy side dish to some roast chicken this evening. We both felt the beets were better than the carrots. Be very careful when shredding your beets. . .unless you are wearing an old red shirt LOL. Made for VEG*N swap.

      What a great way to serve two of my favorite veggies! Did use lemon pepper instead of the S&P, & I also included some tender snow peas I'd found! Ended up with the beets in the center, carrots in the middle & the peas around the outside! Thanks for a great keeper!
