Beet Slaw

This beet slaw is a tangy and sweet side dish, with all of those farm fresh beets, scallions, and fresh mint! It pairs perfectly with grilled chicken or salmon, or as an addition to any leafy green salad.

Beet Slaw

Confession: I haven’t always been a huge beet fan.

Lately though with all the beets from the CSA, and experimenting with my new juicer (beet juice is delicious), I’ve taken more of a liking to them! I wanted to throw these beets grated into some sort of a salad. It just seems more appealing grated to me. This slaw came about, since you know I love slaws, and it is packed with the most fabulous flavors.

My garden is bursting with fresh mint, and my CSA is giving me TONS of beets and scallions. I’m throwing all of my favorite flavors together to make a farmer’s market slaw that everybody will love. It comes together quickly for any BBQ or weekend lunch or dinner.

        Raw beets are amazing, they handle like a carrot, crunchy and sweet plus you get all the nutrients that cooking destroys. Try it! You won’t be disappointed.

    • This Beet Coleslaw is absolutely delicious. It’s very easy to make and delicious, I’ll be making this again.
      I didn’t have to boil the beets they peeled like a potatoe.

    • I LOVE this recipe! I made it with the pink, Candy Cane, beets which have a lighter, sweeter flavor than regular beets. (We found them at the Farmer’s Market and later discovered that our Publix carries them.) Since we are on the Whole30 I didn’t add the honey or maple sugar and I left the raisins out. We will be making this again! Lexi I really appreciate all of the support you give with your great recipes on Facebook and your blog. I don’t even bother putting your cookbook away because I use it so often.

    • Lexi! This is going on my meal prep service’s menu next week – I know our clients are going to love it. Could we maybe get some reposting/featuring love?! Can’t wait to make this one 🙂

      I can’t wait to try this! I recently started eating clean and was introduced to shredded raw beets. They are amazing so I have a feeling I’m going to love this! Thanks for sharing!
