Classic Beet Salad

Classic Beets Salad can be made into one dish, or separate mini sandwthiches just like I presented in the picture. This is one of my absolutely favorite dishes because I love beets and I grew up in the country where beets are number 1 food. We make different kinds of dishes from beets because it is so common. In Russia we eat beets every other day. Why I like Beets? because it is vegetable and it doesn’t make you full and heavy.

Beets are very healthy in general. They contain lots of Vitamins such fiber, magnesium, phosphorus, Vitamin C, iron, Vitamin B6. There is so much more to add to that. If you google, you will find way more information.
