Tangy Beetroot + Cucumber Herby Salad

This chopped salad is QUICK & EASY, while simultaneously tasting INCREDIBLE!

A very unique combination of ingredients yields a delicious, fresh, interesting salad for your next party or get-together!

Make this salad the way you like! If you have a love for certain fresh herbs, then chop them up and throw them in! I think chives and dill would be incredible here too!

We LOVE chopped veggie salads at our house. That’s likely quite obvious because we sure have a lot of chopped salads here on the CFC website.

🔪Do you like chopping veggies?
I’ve always found it to be very relaxing for me. Chopping veggies forces me to slow down, calm down, and be present.
It’s incredibly soothing and the finished result always makes me feel a great sense of accomplishment because my family will be eating all those beautifully prepared fresh vegetables.

We don’t incorporate beets often enough at my house! That’s going to change now!

🤯Beets are one of the most nutrition-packed vegetables in the world because they’re packed with fiber, folate (vitamin B9), potassium, iron, manganese, and vitamin C.
PLUS: studies show they contain compounds that can help lower blood pressure and improve blood flow, as well as boost performance in endurance sports like running and cycling.

✅Tip: Short on time?

Pick up some organic precooked beets in the refrigerator section!
Another tip: smaller beets taste sweeter!
Eat them cold in a salad or sandwich … or heat them up as a side dish.
What’s your favorite way to eat beets?
