Rainbow Detox Salad

From the minute I got my spiralizer, I knew I wanted to make a beet salad.  I just love beets.  Roasted, raw, juiced or as chips.  This salad is not only delicious, it will make you feel amazing!  The very first thing I did with the spiralizer was make my Zucchini Pasta with Avocado Pesto.

Prep Time 30 min


    For the salad

    • 1 beet (peeled with ends removed)
    • 1 large carrot (peeled with ends removed)
    • 1 zucchini (ends removed)
    • 1/2 cup cashews (I used raw, but roasted will work as well)

    For the dressing


    1. Using a spiralizer , cut the zucchini and beets in long ribbons. I used a peeler to cut the carrots into ribbons.
    2. Add all of them to a large bowl.
    3. In a small bowl, make the dressing.
    4. Pour the dressing onto the salad and mix well.
    5. Top with cashews and serve.

    4. I've been meaning to get a spiralizer for about a year now, since around the time I got my dehydrator! Thanks for the reminder with this amazing looking salad! I have to say I never liked beets until I tried them raw - oh my amazing!
    5. This salad looks delicious! I don't have a spiralizer or shredder but hoping to peel just like the carrot...? Is the beet raw?? I have not eaten them uncooked before. Either way, can't wait to try! Thanks for sharing :)
      1. Thanks! Yes the beet is raw. You may be able to make this using a peeler. If you try, let me know how it works.
