Crunchy raw beetroot and carrot salad with or without feta


When people think of beetroot, they imagine boiled or roasted one, but raw beetroot is also very delicious giving salads a deep, earthy flavour, lots of crunch, and incredible collours! So while many of us are still waiting for the first spring harvest, why not to try this salad! For a fancier look or taste add an apple or pear and some more feta! Enjoy!!!

What we need:

2 medium sized beetroots
2 medium sized carrots
a handful of mint
40 gr of feta
1 lemon
2 tbsp of olive oil
salt and pepper

What we have to do:

1. Peel carrots and beetroots and grate or slice in thin sticks.Place them in a bowl.
2. Chop mint and add it to the salad.
3. Mix lemon juice and olive oil, add salt and pepper, mix it and pour over the salad.
4. Toss the salad and serve. Crumble some feta on top ( optional) and add some more mint. Enjoy!!!

  1. Never have been a huge fan of beet. Is that the same thing as beetroot? I should probably give it another try. . .I sure would say yes to the feta on top though!
