Ruby Raw Slaw

21 January

1 bunch cilantro, chopped
2 apples
3 medium beet, peeled
2 inch ginger root
2 -3 Japanese turnips
2 large carrots

Directions: *The dressing (below) makes enough to use for the slaw and more – so use carefully when dressing the Ruby Slaw and save the rest.

1. In a food processor or hand grater, stating with the apples, grate the ingredients listed. After grating, place in a bowl.
2. With your hands mix the ingredients to blend well.
3. Toss with the dressing and gently fold. The salad will taste best vibrantly fresh, yet it will last in the refrigerator for at least 3 days.

1 cup water
1/3 cup ginger root, peeled and chopped

2. Add the toasted sesame oil, the rice vinegar, and tamari. Blend to the count of 5.
3. Add the olive oil and blend for 10 seconds only. Let the dressing set for a few minutes.
