Beet, Carrot & Apple Salad Recipe

Prep time:  15 mins
Total time:  15 mins
Serves: Serves 6+
Ingredients
  • 2 large RAW beets (about 1 lb / 454 g), peeled and roughly chopped
  • 2 large carrots (about 8 oz / 227 g), roughly chopped
  • 2 granny smith apples, cored and roughly chopped*
  • Zest & juice of 2 lemons (~1/4 cup / 59 mL of juice)
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) mild-tasting olive oil
  • ¾ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tbsp raw honey, optional (omit for Whole30)
 
Instructions
  1. Shred the beets, carrots, and apples. I used a food processor fitted with a shredding blade, but you can also use a box grater. Works the same, but it'll just take longer. Place the shredded beets, carrots, and apples into a very large bowl.
  2. Zest the lemons, and add it to the bowl. I used a microplane. Cut the lemons open and squeeze out the juice into the bowl. Be sure you don't put any seeds into the salad.
  3. Add the olive oil, salt, pepper, and honey (optional).
  4. Toss the salad well until everything is evenly combined. I use my hands because they're the best tool for the job.
  5. Keeps in the fridge for up to 3 days.
** Harvest Health Foods Note.... Adding A Tablespoon of grated fresh ginger will give this salad and additional kick! 
Notes
*Any kind of apples will work. They don't have to be granny smith.
