This beet salad/topping is wonderful and healthy one that goes with any kind of snacks like crackers, tortilla chips etc.  Sweet beets and carrots with the crunchy onion and fresh cilantro together with freshly squeezed lime with the hint of little spice, don't they sound tasty for the topping.. Yes they do.  If you have not tried this combination try it out; for sure you will like this.  I use this salad to top so many south Indian munchies too :)  I love this salad a lot... it’s a great way to include beets in your diet.
