Rainbow Roots Slaw with Tahini Parsley Dressing
This colorful salad brightens up any meal and it’s like a detox in a bowl. Antioxidants and liver-supporting nutrients never tasted so good!

Ingredients

Tahini Parsley Dressing

1 small clove garlic, minced

1/4 cup minced fresh flat-leaf (Italian) parsley

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 cup tahini

2 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons filtered water (approx.)

Rainbow Roots Slaw

2 cups shredded green cabbage

2 large carrots, grated

1 firm pear (such as Bosc), grated

2 medium red beets, peeled and grated (*see Tip)

Directions
Yield: 4 servings

1. Dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together garlic, parsley, cumin, salt, tahini, lime juice, and oil. Whisk in 1 tablespoon water. If the dressing is too thick, add the remaining water (or more, as needed).

2. Slaw: In a large bowl, toss together cabbage, carrots, and pear. Add dressing and toss until vegetables are well coated. Add beets and toss to coat.

*Tip: Yes, the beets are eaten raw in this recipe. Beets stain everything, so you may want to wear rubber gloves when you peel and grate them.

The beets are added last so they don’t turn the whole salad red.

This salad can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Quick Pickles
Here’s a way to make better-than-store-bought pickles in under an hour. The secret is pouring the hot vinegar mixture over slices of cold, crisp cucumber. These pickles have the perfect balance of sour and sweet–though closer to a “bread and butter” taste, they still satisfy the vinegar-loving pickle crowd. In our humble opinion, there’s no reason to ever buy another jar of pickles………..

Slow-Cooker Brisket Sandwiches with Quick Pickles
Make your BBQ or cookout easy with this slow-cooker beef brisket recipe. Rauchbier, a smoky German beer, gives this fork-tender brisket real pit-barbecue flavor, but you can use any beer that suits your taste, or even substitute beef broth, to achieve mouthwatering results. While the brisket is cooking, whip up the quick pickle recipe and stir together a garlic mayo to top off the sandwiches………….

Pickled Eggs
These tangy hard-boiled eggs are a snap to make. Sliced in half, the fuchsia “white” surrounding the bright yellow yolk is dazzling. Wrap some egg slices and onions in a flatbread for an impromptu snack…………

When buying Beets…………….

Look for smooth, hard, round beets. The surface should be unbruised and free of cuts. Avoid beets with soft, moist spots or shriveled, flabby skin. The taproot, which extends from the bulbous part of the beet, should be slender.

Healthy Christmas Holiday Recipes
It’s the best time of year, and we’re here to help your celebrate with all of our healthy Christmas recipes. From prime rib to scalloped potatoes, we have a plethora of recipes to make sure you have a delicious holiday season!

Fresh Ham with Red Pepper Glaze
For this fresh roast ham recipe, look for meat that hasn’t been cured or smoked. Many markets stock fresh hams, but you may need to special-order one to be sure. Ask your butcher to remove the skin and leave a layer of fat to self-baste the ham as it roasts…………………..

Easy Stuffed Mushrooms
This healthy stuffed mushroom appetizer is a nice balance of soft mushrooms, creamy filling and crunchy topping. This combination tastes downright decadent, but it’s actually good for you. Be sure to get all of the moisture out of the chopped mushrooms before moving on to the next step; if not, the filling will be soggy and make the mushroom caps watery………………

Roasted Beet Salad
Walnuts, red onion and dill make this roasted beet salad recipe a fantastic accompaniment to chicken or topping for hummus. If you can’t find beets with greens attached, use 1 pound of beets and 8 ounces of chard leaves……………………

Buying Beets……………………..

Go for smaller beets as they are typically more tender than the larger variety. The greens should be bright, but cut them soon after buying so that they don’t extract moisture from the bulb. Then to store them, refrigerate beets in plastic for up to three weeks.

Storing Vegetables……………..

If you’ve purchased a vegetable with a leafy top, such as a beet greens or carrots, remove the green top before you store it in the fridge. The leafy tops will leach moisture from the root or bulb and shorten the vegetable’s shelf life.
