Super Quick, Raw Beet & Fennel Salad (GAPS, Gluten-Free, Paleo-Friendly)

Enjoy the garden's first offerings of spring/early summer with this salad.  The cleansing, cancer-fighting, folic acid-rich beets and the iron-packed yet soothing-to-the-stomach fennel make a wonderful partnership in power-boosting your health.  The flavors also pair wonderfully together.  This recipe can be made without a food processor, but it will take longer.  

Quick Raw Beet & Fennel Salad
Prep time: 10 minutes; serves 6-8
  • 1 large shallot
  • 2 bunches beets
  • 1 fennel bulb
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar (this balsamic raspberry vinegar is really good in the recipe)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
  • freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced
  1. Peel beets & shallots.  Use the mincing blade on the food processor to dice shallot.  Remove mincing blade and replace with grating attachment.  Grate beets and fennel.
  2. Scoop processed shallots beets, and fennel into a serving bowl.  Add remaining ingredients and stir well to incorporate.  Serve and enjoy!
