Raw beetroot salad

Beetroots are a great source of fiber, folate, manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C. Raw beetroots and beetroot juice have been associated with improved blood flow, lower blood pressure, and increased exercise performance. You can also grate the beetroot coarsely rather than slicing if you prefer.
