Vegan Salad Recipes: Spiralized Beet and Blood Orange Salad

During the warmer months, I always try to remember that the number of times my body tells me it is hungry is a lie, and in fact, it’s probably just thirsty. I try to keep my body hydrated by eating fruits and veggies with a high water content, as well as juicing them. One of my favorite fruit and veggie juice combinations is carrot, orange, ginger, and beet. This has been my go-to juice since I bought my juicer. As often as I drink this juice, I realized I had never had these foods all together as a whole before–without being juiced together.

As a meal, this salad tastes similar to the juice it was inspired by. It is refreshing, sweet, and tangy, and it fills you up without weighing you down. It is almost completely raw, allowing the body to absorb the ample amounts of vitamin C it brings to the table.
