Salad with Shaved Carrots and Beets

Serves: 2 | Serving Size: 2 and 1/4 cups

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups mixed spring greens, rinsed and dried
  • 2 baby carrots, rinsed
  • 2 baby beets, rinsed
  • 2 tsp avocado oil or extra virgin olive oil

  2. Lemon juice makes a great stand-in for flavored vinegar if you don’t have anything on hand.

  4. No mandolin? Shaky knife skills? Try shaving the vegetables with a sharp peeler instead.
