Raw Root Slaw

Lately I’ve developed a taste for raw beets, and a desire to cook my veggies less in general. This very orange slaw is a stab at that.


  • 1 medium turnip
  • 1 smallish sweet potato **I’ve seen a few things about raw sweet potatoes being a little toxic, so proceed at your own risk**
  • 1 medium beet (mine was golden, but I think a red one might be even better)
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 large parsnip
Chop finely:
  • 3-4 stalks celery
  • 1/2 medium red onion
  • 1/4 C toasted sesame seeds
  • dried garlic flakes to taste, crushed between fingers
Mix above together in large bowl.
Whisk together:
  • 1/2 cup white wine vinegar or herbed vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1/4 t dijon mustard
  • 1 inch section finely grated ginger
  • poppy seeds
  • 1/2 almond oil
  • dash sesame oil
Drizzle over root mixture and mix well. I’m guessing this will improve as it sits in the fridge a while, but its pretty good right away, too.
