summer-into-fall beet salad

Here’s a simple salad for a healthful vegan lunch ‘chez toi’ (at your place) or ‘sur la route’ (on-the-go).  Grate up the beets and carrots the night before; season with lemon and some coconut aminos.  Voila, they’re now handy to grab from the fridge for wraps, salads, etc.!  If you don’t want a whole slew of slaw, just shred up a beet and a carrot by hand.

  1. Oh, that looks delish. And very munchy crunchy…..Where would I get the coconut aminos?? Not sure I have ever seen them, but then I guess I haven’t looked. Very vibrant looking dish, Jen. And yes, mouth watering……

  2. Raw beets? It would never have occurred to me to eat them raw! I wondered about the coconut aminos too! Thanks!!

    • *hands Suze a forkful of shredded raw beets — Let me know how you like them! Lemon juice, something salty, and fresh black pepper bring out that earthy, sweet flavor. A good source of vitamin C, iron, folate, potassium and fiber.

  3. Duckie asked the same question I was going to… so Coconut Aminos is a garnish? Thanks! Looks delish!

    • Coconut aminos are made from sap of the coconut tree and sea salt. I find that soy sauce is a bit overpowering, flavorwise. Thanks for checking out this salad. It was spur-or-the-moment but turned out quite yummy.
