INGREDIENTS (serves 2):

For the Salad:

  • 2 medium beetroots, peeled and grated

  • 1 carrot, peeled and grated

  • 1 apple (tart or sweet variety), cored and grated

  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped

  • 1/4 cup walnuts, soaked and chopped (see tip below) For the Garlicky Lemon-Olive Oil Dressing:

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Soak and Chop the Walnuts: To activate the walnuts, soak them in a bowl of water for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight. Drain and chop them before adding to the salad.

  2. Grate the Vegetables: Using a food processor with a grater attachment (or a box grater) grate the peeled beetroots, carrot, and apple.

  3. Chop the Parsley: Chop the fresh parsley.

  4. Combine the Salad: In a large bowl, combine the grated beetroot, carrot, and apple, chopped fresh parsley, and chopped walnuts.

  5. Make the Dressing: In a separate bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Adjust seasonings to your taste.

  6. Dress and Serve: Drizzle the garlicky lemon-olive oil dressing over the salad and toss gently to coat all the ingredients. Serve immediately and enjoy the vibrant flavors of autumn!


  • Hearty Twist: Want a more filling meal? Add a can of drained chickpeas, crumbled tempeh, or cubed cooked tofu on top of the salad!

  • Leftovers: This salad is best enjoyed fresh, but can be stored in the fridge for up to 1 day. However, the color and texture of the beetroot may change slightly.
