Raw Mango Beet Salad


I am getting fresh bunches of beets from our local farm these days. After the beet greens are used, I am left with the fresh beets which is perfect for this is refreshing summer salad. This is a simple salad with beets and raw mango, pepped up with a little bit of peanuts and coconut oil. The sweetness of beets and the strong flavor is normalized by the sour and refreshing flavor of raw mango.

  • Beet root - 1 medium
  • Raw Mango - about 1/4th from a large mango
  • Raw organic peanuts - handful
  • Thai red chilly - 1/2 (since it is really hot, I use only half)
  • Sesame seeds - 1 Tbs.
  • Virgin coconut oil - 1 Tbs.
  • Sea salt - as per taste

  • Peel the beet and julienne really thin.
  • Peel mango and julienne really thin as well.
  • Add peanuts and red chilly to a coffee/spice grinder and coarsely grind them. Some chunks of peanuts should remain.
  • Mix the veggies and peanuts and keep them aside for 30 minutes or so.
  • When ready to serve, add salt and melted coconut oil and mix well.
  • Serve topped with sesame seeds.
