Raw Apple & Beet Salad

I can't even tell you how much I love this combo. The apples soak up the dressing and neutralize the beets so they're more bearable to eat. I don't mind the taste of beets but I know some people (like Mike) don't prefer their "dirt" like taste. I remember seeing this idea with fennel added but I decided to keep the fennel out and make my own dressing.
Each bite is so fresh & juicy, it came out perfect.
~Beets are loaded with folic acid and rich in antioxidants~
2 Organic Beets (shredded or peeled)
2 Organic Granny Smith Apples (shredded or peeled)
1/4 C Fresh Lemon Juice
1/4 C Olive Oil
1 Tbs Avage
Salt & Pepper to taste
