Blanca Arroyo This is my very unique version of the chopped vegetables we used to eat back home in Mexico City on hot days. Back then, my parents would treat us to sliced radish, jícama, carrots and cucumbers – instead of grated! But my love for vegetables increased when I moved to the United States because I discovered a great variety of different vegetables - such as yellow beets or white carrots - which allowed me to enhance this recipe. Enjoy! MORE + LESS -

Expert Tips

  • I suggest you use plastic gloves when grating the vegetables and preparing this recipe to avoid purple or orange stains on your hands from the beets and carrots. Every time you grate a vegetable, wash the grater.
  • It’s very important to follow the order of the vegetables when you grate them. Start off with the jícama and finish with the purple beets. Grate from top to bottom and don’t grate it again in the opposite direction or you will extract much of the juice from the vegetables. After done grating the cucumber, drain it in a strainer for a few minutes to get rid of all the water.
  • You can also serve it on a large platter over a bed of lettuce.
