“Vita” means life, in Italian. But in this case, it refers to the 75% RDA of Vitamin A found in this colourful salad.

1 large beet, shredded
2 medium sized carrots

2-4 tbsp. finely sliced red onion OR to taste
2 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tbsp. malt or apple cider vinegar
Spritz of freshly squeezed lemon
Salt & pepper to taste
