6 large beets, peeled1 bunch green onions, chopped         ½ cup apple cider vinegar             2 Tbsp. water pinch sugar ¼ tsp. salt ¼ tsp. black pepper

Grate the fresh beets on the finest grater you have – preferably one used to grate lemon peel.  If you are using a food processor, use the blade with the smallest holes.  Place the grated beets in a bowl.  Mix the remaining ingredients until blended and pour over the beets.  Toss and marinate in refrigerator for several hours before serving.  For an interesting variation substitute grated carrots and/or grated Daikon radishes for one-third of the beets.
