Raw Beet & Apple Salad
This is a refreshing, detoxifying salad. Besides being high in fiber, the beets are known to be a blood and liver cleanser. A Dr. friend of mine recommends eating a raw beet a day for a week to cleanse and nourish the body. This is a delicious way to do that. And you know what they say about apples...
RAW BEET & APPLE SALAD Recipe:
1 large raw beet, grated
4 medium apples, cored and grated
zest of 1/2 organic lemon, optional
1/2 organic lemon, juiced
Mix the raw shredded beet and apples together. It should be about equal parts beet to apple.
Add the lemon zest, if using and fresh lemon juice. Toss well to mix.
Taste the salad, it should be a little tangy from the lemon juice, add more if its not.
