Quick Beetroot Salad.

Salads form a pretty integral part of Polish cuisine and while there are many different recipes out there, this quick beetroot salad with sunflower seeds recipe isn’t really a Polish recipe. It is however one of my favorite recipes because it is super easy and quick to make. The salad also tastes incredible. 

The best part about the salad is that it uses beetroot. Beetroot is available all year round and is so easy to store which makes it easily accessible. This root vegetable is very rich in folate or Vitamin B9 which is essential for cell growth and function. It is a key nutrient in the diet of children. It is also known to help reduce heart disease.

Another interesting thing about beetroot is that it has a mildly sweet texture which children and adults love. Its vibrant reddish pink color means that any salad made using it always looks so pretty.
