Bright, crunchy, and infinitely pairable—this healthy side salad brings a lot to the table. It's a good thing then that beets are also a top source of plant-based iron. And when teamed up with citrus like they are here, it makes it more than just delicious—the vitamin C boosts how much of the good-for-you nutrients your body can absorb.
Create crunchy matchsticks out of the hardy vegetables by using a mandolin to make thin and even slices, then stack and slice them into thin sticks using a chef's knife. Alternatively, make quick work of prep by using the slicing attachment of your food processor.
