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!

This is a very pretty and tasty dish. It is very colorful and special enough for company.

The photo of this recipe made me make it!! We really enjoyed this salad and I loved the fresh crunch and the beets were awesome! I added some baby spinach leaves to the greens because we can never get enough spinach!! *Zaar World Tour 3*

This salad is so beautiful to serve on a white plate. The ginger gives a wonderful clean taste to the vegetables and the vinegar the right amount of tartness. I did not have lettuce leaves but did mound some baby spinach for the carrot mix.

Not much to add to the other reviewer comments. I was surprised by how good the raw beets would be. If you are a beet lover, this is going to be a real treat.

Beautiful, tasty, and nutritious. I doubled the recipe, put the beets in the center and the carrots around them and used a good imported German cider vinegar.
