Salad with Shaved Carrots and Beets

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


  • 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
  • Flavored vinegar to taste
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced


  1. Toss the greens with the avocado oil, then pile them high on a plate. Shave the carrots and beets on a mandolin or with a sharp knife. You can leave the skin on — just make sure you rinse them very well.
  2. Garnish with the flavored vinegar and avocado slices.
  3. Serve immediately.

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