I love the simplicity of combining common ingredients to create a hearty, healthy dish that can be enjoyed as a snack or as a main course.

Makes 1 main-course or 2 side salads.

INGREDIENTS
1⁄2 cup    shredded carrot    
1⁄2 cup    shredded beet    
1⁄2 cup    finely sliced kale     
1⁄4 cup    shredded squash    
3 tbsp     freshly squeezed lemon juice    
1⁄2 tsp    fine sea salt 

DIRECTIONS
    In a bowl, toss together carrot, beet, kale and squash. Add lemon juice and salt. Toss well. Set aside for 10 minutes, until softened. Serve immediately or transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 2 days.

VARIATIONS
    Substitute an equal quantity of lime juice for the lemon juice and/or an equal quantity of finely sliced chard for the kale. For a boost of protein, add 3 tbsp raw shelled hemp seeds.

TIP
    I prefer to use organic sea salt. This type of salt is classified as a whole food and is said to contain many trace minerals. If salt intake is something you are concerned about, feel free to use less than called for or omit it completely.
