Exki is a local restaurant that sells fresh, natural foods for the business lunch crowd. You know this type of restaurant. They have a marvelous beet salad that converted me: try it!
Shredded raw beets + rapeseed oil (I use olive oil) + fresh coriander/cilantro snippets + salt & pepper
It’s beautiful to look at too. My at-home version is made from cubed beets bought from the store, because I’m not motivated to peel and prepare raw beets.
