Raw Food Recipe: Heart Beet Salad

serves 2 ~ $2.79 per serving


  • 5 oz spinach ($1.49)
  • 1/2 head radicchio ($1.40)
  • 4 radishes ($.40)
  • 1 red onion ($.59)
  • 1 beet, including greens ($.89)


  • 4 strawberries ($.40)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil ($.20)
  • 2 tablespoons agave ($.20)
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • salt & pepper

I heart beets. I never even liked them before, cooked that is … but raw beets are sweet and earthy and not overpowering at all. And who doesn’t love a salad with red hearts all over it?

This is pretty simple. Just rinse the spinach, chop the radicchio and beet greens into strips, slice the radishes, and dice the onion and toss. Cut the beet very thinly. I used my food processor with the slicing blade, but a mandoline would probably be ideal. Then use a knife or kitchen scissors to cut the beet slices into heart shapes. Arrange on the salad.

Make the dressing by pureeing the strawberries, olive oil, agave, garlic, and salt & pepper in a blender until smooth and creamy. I found I actually prefer a salad dressing without the strawberries and if I make this again, I would omit them and just whisk the dressing ingredients together.
