Beetroot salad is a very healthy one and super easy one to make. The recipe of this healthy Indian version of beets salad was given by my friend very long back. I love beetroot and so even kids too love beetroot. I have posted beetroot vadai,beetroot curry, beetroot pulao and many other recipes with beetroot. Some how raw beetroot never fascinated me and never tried this salad for a long time. When we had a casual dinner at my house few months back with her family,i made beetroot vada for starter. He was telling he is not a big fan of beetroot and the salad which she makes only he loves in beetroot. And complimented me for the vada too. Then i thought i should give this salad a try. That time only i was writing Salads and Soups article for Kungumam Thozi. I made it the next day and it was awesome. After that the beetroot salad is a regular one in my weekly menu. Try out this simple and healthy salad in your meal.
