Recipe ReDux Post # 66 Detox Salad

The Recipe ReDux for January  is “Favorite Kitchen Tool!”  To start off 2018 we were encouraged to develop a recipe featuring one of our favorite kitchen gadgets.  I absolutely LOVE my julienne peeler. In fact I got a new one recently. Currently, the main culinary purpose it  serves in my household is to make zucchini noodles, so for this ReDux challenge I wanted to try something new.  

The New Year is a time to begin fresh and for many, to clean up eating habits after indulging over the holidays. I decided to try making a yummy “detox” salad including flavorful beet and carrot shreds  (brought to you by the julienne peeler of course) along with some other nutrient packed ingredients like apples and walnuts.  I tossed all of this in a simple dressing of lemon, olive oil, rice vinegar and honey which brought it tighter perfectly. It’s a great side to brighten up your meal, or you can serve it as a main meal atop your favorite greens with added protein like chicken or fish.  I hope you will try it out along with all the other yummy recipes made with cool kitchen gadgets by the Recipe ReDux team!


½ cup carrots shreds (use 1 medium carrot)
½ cup raw beet shreds ( use ½-1 medium beet)
½ cup chopped apple
¼ cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon honey
salad greens like kale, spinach, field greens (optional for serving)


Peel the carrot and beets, then shred them using the julienne peeler (or a regular peeler or food processor can also be used) . Add them to the chopped apple and walnuts in a small-medium sized bowl. In  a  separate small bowl whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, honey and lemon juice. Pour the dressing into the bowl with the salad ingredients, toss and serve.   .
