    I just recently discovered that I like raw beets. As a child I always thought the cooked ones were gross so I never thought to try them raw until a few weeks ago.

    I also love cucumber so I think this salad will be a hit for me. Thanks for the recipe!

    • This raw beet salad with cucumber is really the perfect match with the “Grilled Beef Ribs with sweet chilli sauce”.
      So when you try the Grilled Beef Ribs, don’t forget to accompany it with this great salad recipe.
      Have a nice meal my dear friend.
