from How To Cook Everything Vegetarian
The only drawback to this recipe is that my hands, kitchen, and cats were all temporarily dyed red. (Long story about the cats! Everything cleaned up easily with minimal fuss.)
This salad is quick to make, extremely nutritious, and exceptionally delicious.
I made this dish early on in the week, so we could eat it as a side dish or snack whenever we wanted it. I still can't believe how easy it was to make! Just shred the beets on the cheese grater, dice the onion, and mix with the dressing. Ta da!
Don't forget the beet greens either. You can serve this salad on a bed of raw beet greens or save them later for braising (a great side dish for beef).
