Although this is not a traditional salad, nor a traditional use of beets, it is absolutely delicious, and worth a try.

How to make it:
  1. Grate new raw beets (I use the second largest size on my grater) into a bowl. The beets should be crisp and juicy.
  2. Wash carefully a fresh lemon with soap and water, then using a zestier, peel bits of the rind into the beet mixture.
  3. Add freshly squeezed lemon juice, olive oil and a touch of salt to taste.
  4. If you have it, cut some fresh dill weed into the salad. Stir well.
