Raw Beet Salad

In Poland, beetroot is a beloved ingredient that features in many traditional dishes. From classic Beetroot Barszcz to tangy beetroot salads like Ćwikła, beet holds a special place in Polish culinary culture. Today, I’m happy to share with you a refreshing Raw Beet Salad recipe, that celebrates the flavors of raw beetroot, carrots, apples, and red onions, all brought together in a creamy mayonnaise-yogurt sauce with a zesty twist of lemon juice. Actually I discovered this salad recently and I was really surprised that you can use raw beetroot in a salad. In addition and it’s really important, this raw beetroot salad, unlike dishes made with cooked beets, has a low glycemic index, making it beneficial for individuals with diabetes.
