remember how i mentioned last time that i sometimes mimic recipes from my amazing co-op? well, i was able to do it again, this time with a raw vegetable salad that has only FOUR ingredients. indeed. it goes like this:
Raw Beet & Carrot Salad
4-5 medium to large carrots
3-4 medium to large beets
agave syrup -approx. 3 tbsp
apple cider vinegar - approx. 2-3 tbsp
keep in mine that this recipe is not exact, nor does it have to be. it is entirely up to you how much you want to make and what your tastes are. i prefer the sweeter, more vinegar-y taste so i went heavy on the agave and vinegar.
grate the beets and carrots into a large bowl, either by hand or by food processor. then add agave and vinegar to taste. keep in mind that if you grate by hand your fingers and hands will turn very pink from the beets.
see, i told you that was easy. it's raw, vegan, and very healthy. beets and carrots are extremely high in vitamins and when eaten raw those vitamins are better able to absorb into the bloodstream. i used the amount of veggies listed here and we still have some in the fridge (its been about a week). the vinegar helps preserve the veggies so it will last a good 7-8 days in the fridge. easy to pack for a lunch or snack!!
