Raw Beet & Sweet Potato Spirals
Because beets are gorgeous and great for you and I can never get enough sweet potatoes.
Raw Beet & Sweet Potato Salad
1 ginormous sweet potato, or 2 regulars
1 bunch of beets (around 3 or 4)
1 bunch of green onions
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
Peel the sweet potatoes & beets. Spiralize them.
Mix sweet potatoes & beets. Cut the white part of the green onions into thin strips. Sprinkle sweet potatoes & beets with green onion & pumpkin seeds.
Review: This was good! What you’d expect. The green onions added a nice touch. Did not make an overwhelming amount.
Tips: Be careful of the beets! I’m still trying to get the stain out of my wood cutting board. Also, don’t throw away the beet leaves, you can use them as normal greens (eat them raw, cook them, smoothie them up).
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon ground coriander
2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh chopped cilantro
Stir all ingredients together.
Review: this was AMAZING! Great flavor, perfect amount of salt. The recipe called for sugar, which I did not add and it turned out perfect.
Tip: the amount of cilantro below is more than a tablespoon. Maybe double.
And all together…
