Parsnip, Kale and Beet Salad

Are you craving raw food, but it's the dead of winter? Are you seeking a parsnip and beet outlet that doesn't involve tossing with olive oil and roasting? Are you always searching for innovative ways to sneak in extra kale? Look no further than this refreshing salad, which showcases wintry ingredients in a beautiful confetti-like raw presentation, scented with fresh mint.

3 leaves lacinato kale, thinly sliced
1 large parsnip, scrubbed and grated
1 beet, scrubbed and grated
1/2 a head of green romaine lettuce, finely chopped
1/2 a small red onion, minced
2 tablespoons fresh mint, chopped

Combine. Mix with your favorite salad dressing (we love Annie's Naturals Goddess dressing).

Yay! Increased kale consumption is our raison d'etre around here...
