  • 1 Red Beet
  • 2-3 Apples (I used Honeycrisp, any kind will work. The more apples the sweeter it will be.)
  • 1/2 Lemon (just the juice)
  • 2 tsp Olive Oil
  • Salt (as desired)


  • Wash and peel your beet. Wash the apples. I did not peel the apples I used, but you can if you'd like. Then, cut the beet and the apples into fourths and place in the food processor. Pulse until you get a shredded 
  • Transfer the beets and apples to a large bowl. Add the juice of the lemon, olive oil and salt (if using) to the bowl and mix well. Let sit for 5-10 minutes to allow the flavors to absorb. Taste it and adjust any of the seasonings. Serve as is or on a bed of lettuce. Store in the refrigerator in an air-tight container for 2-3 days. 


  1. If you do not have a food processor, you can use a grater.
  2. If you don't want to risk your fingers getting stained, make sure to wear gloves.
