Summer shredded beet salad

when I don't feel like cooking because it's too hot I start thinking salads. LOTS of salads. I love having fresh veggies from the garden to use in those yummy salads.
This is one of my favorites - I think it looks festive and it tastes GREAT! I make a salad with lettuce, fresh cucumbers and cherry tomatoes from the garden then I shred multi colored beets and carrots into the salad and top with a delicious vinaigrette. You Can't go wrong! The vinaigrette I used for this is 3parts Olive oil, 1 part Red wine vinager, sea salt and pepper to taste.
Don't these fresh picked tomatoes make you want to have a big salad? MMMMMMM and it's light on the calories too. It won't undo your weekday workouts!!!!
