This makes a great side dish for chicken, beef, or fish and it only takes a few minutes to put together.

It’s reminiscent of slaw especially if you finely grate the carrots and beets.

The addition of the apple, and lemon is a nice contrast to the sweet vegetables. The flavor is bright and citrusy.

Ingredients:

3 – 4 carrots
1 medium beet root
1 apple, I used a granny smith, peeled
1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
1 lemon, juiced and zested
1 Tbsp. olive oil
2 leaves of basil, chiffonade
fresh parsley to garnish
salt to taste

Directions:

Wash and peel carrots and the beet if they are not organic. Using a hand grater, grate the carrot and beet together in a large bowl. Take two forks and toss to combine.

In a separate bowl combine the olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, basil and a pinch of salt and whisk until well blended.

Pour the dressing over the carrots and beet. Stir to combine. Save the apple until last. Grate the apple and add it to the mixture along with the sunflower seeds. Mix well.

Chill until ready to serve. Sprinkle chopped parsley over the top just before serving.
