Ingredients

 

  • Beetroots: 2 medium (peeled and grated, see note)
  • Carrots: 4 large or 6 medium (peeled and grated)
  • Honey: 1 tbsp
  • Lemon juice: 2 to 4 tbsp or to taste
  • Caraway, hemp, or sesame seeds: 1 tbsp
  • Rock salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Fresh herbs of your choice (parsley, cilantro, or dill, or a combination): leaves from a few sprigs minced(optional)
Method
  • Combine all the ingredients in a serving bowl.
  • Allow time to let the salad stand (at room temperature or refrigerated), so that the flavour can blend.

Note:

If you like beets partially cooked (they’re also easier to peel and cut that way), you can simmer them whole in water to cover for about 5 to 8 minutes. Or, place them in a heatproof container with a very small amount of water; cover and microwave for 2 minutes per beet. With either method, don’t cook for too long — you want to be able to pierce through maybe 1/4 inch, with resistance. Peel and cut the beets into chunks once they’re cool enough to handle, before grating them.
