beet and carrot salad poached from a mayo clinic cookbook

July 8, 2010

I found this great cook book in a used bookstore a ways back. I must admit I mostly look at the pictures when I am hungry and then eat something boring. There is a great recipe in the book which is super easy for a beet and carrot salad which is amazing and easy. For the parents out there; even the finicky eaters love this one (you can tone down the garlic if needed).

Ingredients:

a food processor

2 or 3 medium sized beets boiled until soft and cut into food processor sized pieces

4 or 5 medium sized carrots

1/3 cup of fresh cilantro

2 cloves of garlic minced

1/3 cup of rice wine vinegar

Directions:

Shred beets in the food processor and place in a large mixing bowl (something that will not stain is preferable)

Shred carrots in the food processor and add to the beet mixture

Add minced garlic

Add rice wine vinegar

Add the cilantro and mix thouroughly

Garnish with a little extra cilantro

Enjoy.
