Recipe with beets

Shredded summer beet salad

Ingredients: beets, basil, lime juice, olive oil, salt

Preparing: Shred beets into bowl with a cheese grater (no need to peel; the skin will end up not grating into the dish). Add chopped fresh basil, fresh lime juice, olive oil and salt to taste.

Eating: Good side dish. Could also substitute the basil/lime juice for cumin/chive/lemon juice or rice vinegar/sesame oil/scallion. We've also added leftover plain black beans to this dish to bulk it up a bit.

Dish history: On hot summer days who in the world wants to roast or boil beets?!?
