Beets have the highest sugar among all the vegetables. They help improve haemoglobin, reduce cholesterol level, help treat patients with heart disease and prevent certain types of cancers (esp. the colon).
In a salad bowl, mix the grated beets, green peas, tomatoes, ginger and cilantro. In a small bowl whisk the lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper and use this as your salad dressing.
