While apples are something I eat pretty much everyday, I’ve always kind of struggled with new ideas for preparing carrots and beets.
But this my friends, I must say is a keeper and Winner in more ways than one. Cause I’m a big fan of easy, make ahead, healthy dishes or salads.
Plus the flavors are amazing with the light lemony vinaigrette and the addition of Mint & Cilantro.
Also if you’re a big fan of Cheese like me, this is great topped with a little feta right before serving.

Peel and spiralized your carrots and beets.
