Beet, Carrot, and Apple Salad from Stupid Easy Paleo!

I love summer salads that don't include the traditional bed of greens! Steph from Stupid Easy Paleo put out this recipe for Beet, Carrot, Apple Salad that is absolutely delicious.

It's bright, fun, and super easy to pair with variety of main dishes. I might switch out beets for jicama if beets kinda freak you out. Watch out because beets might stain your clothes or hands! Recipe below!

 

 

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.
