I made this rainbow slaw for a picnic before a Bard on the Beach night and the comments I got were pretty hilarious.  Things like “What am I eating?”, “Why are these vegetables tasty?” and “Why is this carrot purple?” were a few questions that I got.

It’s rather simple you see, sometimes beets aren’t red and carrots aren’t always just orange.  There ARE different varieties and usually you can only find them at farmer’s markets.  Plus it’s fun.  Plus it’s mega tasty.

Here’s the recipe!

What you need!
1 golden beet
1 red beet (red and white striped inside)
2 purple carrots
1/2 walla walla sweet onion
handful of basil
1 gala apple

Dressing:
Lime juice
Apple cider vinegar
Truffle oil
Dried thyme
Salt
Pepper

What to do!

1.  Cut everything into matchsticks and chop the basil.

Aren't these carrots soOoOoOoOOoo cool?

2.  Make the dressing in a bowl, I kinda winged the quantities but the idea is to make a vinaigrette to taste.  A whole lime, a couple of teaspoons of apple cider vinegar, a drizzle of truffle oil, a few shakes of thyme and salt and pepper to taste!

3.  Add the dressing a little bit at a time and mix into the slaw.  Taste and add more if needed…enjoy!
