Coconut Beet Salad

This salad is delicious and naturally sweet. Being raw, it is full of beneficial enzymes. It can be served as a snack on a warm day or even as a dessert. Even my most picky eater friends have tried it and loved it! Coconut is high in medium chain fatty acids, which the body uses immediately for a source of energy. Coconut is also rich in lauric acid, known to have anti-viral, anti-microbial, and anti-fungal properties. Beets purify the blood and help the liver in detoxification. This is a high fiber dish with 3.6 grams per serving. The colors are beautiful and dramatic! Enjoy! 

Ingredients:
1 large organic beet
1 large carrot
1 apple
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1/2 cup dried unsweetened coconut
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp minced ginger
Chopped parsley or cilantro
Salt to taste
Instructions:
Peel and shred beet carrot and apple. I just use a cheese grater.
Combine in a large bowl.
Add nuts, coconut, ginger, and oil. 
Stir. Season with salt, parsley, or cilantro to taste. 
Makes 4-5 servings.
