Everyone loved this salad at the Farmers Market tasting. We roasted the carrots and beets which was a huge hit!

Most of my fourth graders really enjoyed this recipe, although it took more than one bite to grow on them! I served it with raw grated carrots, beets boiled from fresh, and substituted plain lowfat yogurt for the mayonnaise. Some thought it was a little bit too salty.
