Spiralized Beet and Carrot Salad

Cansanity
Bring gourmet to your dinner table with this basic salad made fancy with spiralized beets and carrots, celery, blue cheese, and a quick, simple red wine vinaigrette. Carrots and beets will sweeten when left in the ground after a frost. So, I often make this salad in the late fall when I still have all these fresh veggies growing in my garden.
