Simple Beet Salad

I looooove beets! This is a super simple salad to make. It can be a perfect side dish for the holidays or when you need to add a little color to the table. 


2-3 beets

Handful of nuts (walnuts/ pine)

1-2 fresh garlic cloves, minced

Salt to taste (optional)

1 tbsp vegan mayo (optional- I left this out)


1) Boil beets with the skin on. Make take about an hour. To test if they are done cooking, use a sharp knife to poke the beets and they should slide off easily. Take the beets out of the water and allow them to cool until they are comfortable to handle. To remove the skin, pinch the sides of the beets with you finger and the skin should just slide off. 

2) Grate the beets with a medium sized grater in a bowl. Add nuts and garlic and mix in.
