Beets are super healthy!!!! According to web md, beets are rich in folate (vitamin B9) which helps cells grow and function. Folate plays a key role in controlling damage to blood vessels, which can reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. This is how you make Greek beet salad: add beets, garlic, olive oil, and vinegar to a mixing bowl and toss to coat. Add mint, parsley, salt, and pepper and toss gently until the rest of the ingredients are combined. Serve immediately.
