Energy Salad

This salad is a good example of a truly healthy dish that really doesn’t have to cost much. It’s raw. It’s sugar-free. It’s delicious. And my kids have loved it since they were toddlers. (Girls especially like the “pink” from the beets.)

1 raw beet

1 apple, grated

1 carrot, grated

1/2 cup cabbage, finely sliced

2 Tbsp sunflower seeds (I don’t always add these because I don’t often have them on hand.)

Small handful raisins (or other dried fruit)

2 tsp olive oil

1 Tbsp lemon juice or orange juice

1 tsp honey

Combine grated beet, apple, carrot, and cabbage in bowl. Mix in sunflower seeds and dried fruit. In separate bowl, mix oil, juice and honey together until well blended. Pour mixture over salad and toss until salad is evenly coated.
