Raw Beet Salad - not a recipe per se
My goal is to make something delicious and as nutritious as possible. Today a twitter friend asked me to share my recipe for raw beet salad since he has more beets than he knows what to do with. Here a guide to making it. I encourage y'all to be creative. Improvise with what you have on hand. You really can't go wrong when using fresh, organic, home grown or locally grown ingredients. That is what you use right?

2 Parts (2 cups) raw beets grated or finely diced
