But shredding beets and mixing with equal parts of shredded carrots masks some of the nasty flavor that people don't like. I first found this delicious salad as a prepackaged salad from Dole at my supermarket, but that's far more expensive than buying carrots and beets and shredding them, and that's not too much work.
I just pour some flavored olive oil over the beet/carrot mix and add salt to taste. An amazing side dish.
