Did you know that the whole entire beet plant is edible, from the greens all the way to the roots? Beet greens make amazing salads like this one. Also, beets contain betalin, which detoxifies the body and gives beets their bright color.

Winter is the best time to enjoy beets. They are well known to be put into soups like borscht and are so comforting to eat! Garlic is the best way to spice up any dish and get the benefits of antioxidants, stronger bones, and vitamins B and C.

Note: I use this Kuhn Rikon Julienne Mandoline) for shredding the beets in this salad. But I also use it for other vegetables, it makes a great presentation and easy to eat.
