“Ready in just 20 minutes, this raw vegetable salad is the perfect side for your next grilling event. Coarsely shredded beets and celeriac are combined with apple in a basil-cider vinegar-mayonnaise dressing.”
12 ounces fresh beets (without greens), trimmed, peeled and coarsely shredded (see Tip)
12 ounces celeriac, trimmed, peeled and coarsely shredded, or 2 medium parsnips, peeled and coarsely shredded (see Tip)
1 cup fresh watercress, tough stems removed
1 large apple, cored and chopped
⅓ cup light mayonnaise
¼ cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons snipped fresh basil
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
⅛ teaspoon black pepper
1In a large bowl combine shredded beets, celeriac, watercress and apple. Set aside.
2In a small bowl combine mayonnaise, vinegar, basil, the salt and pepper until well combined. Add to beet mixture; toss to coat. Serve immediately or cover with foil or plastic wrap and chill for up to 8 hours. Divide evenly among four serving plates.
Tip: Use a food processor fitted with a coarse shredder to easily shred the beets and celeriac or parsnips.
