RED BEETS SALAD WITH NASTURTIUM AND HAZELNUTS

There are many kinds of beets- not all of them are red, but also yellow, white and striped.They are filled with fiber, C-vitamin and iron.  We can get them fresh from August and until the frost sets in October or November. Beets can be cooked, grated, made to juice and preserved. We usually eat the root, but the leaves taste also good in a salad.  This is a salad we eat alot  at this time of the year.
