Root vegetables are delicious and when finely shaved and added to a salad, they are an excellent way to get lots of your veggies down.

I love eating a wide variety of veggies and think this is one of the tastiest salads I’ve made by far.


  • 4 Golden beets, shaved
  • 4 Red beets, shaved
  • 4 Carrots, shaved
  • 2 Cucumbers, shaved
  • 1 Jicama, shaved
  • 1 Bunch of radishes


  • 1 1/2 tbsp Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 3 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp Honey dijon mustard
  • 2 drops Lemon essential oil
  • 4 drops Coriander essential oil
  • Pinch Himalayan Sea Salt
  • Cracked Pepper


Slice all veggies thinly on a mandolin and toss with dressing. Make sure dressing is well-whisked.


I have just given you a robust salad recipe that can either be served as an appetizer or main course. Would you add anything more to this colorful medley? I would love to hear your thoughts. Please leave your comments in the box below.

P.S. The reason I use Essential oils in my recipes is they have amazing holistic properties:

Lemon oil:  infamous for its cleansing properties. It is also extremely refreshing and it can elevate your mood.

Cilantro oil :  is great for detoxification and improving your circulation.

Not all essential oils are therapeutic grade and can be taken internally. I use only the very best.
