You can also call this Beet/kale/apple/carrot/balsamic salad. I have developed this from a few similar recipes and feel it is at its ultimate form.

Also note, these photos are from a doubled batch and you wont have this much.

Ingredients:  1 raw peeled beet, 2 large apples, 3 carrots, 3 large kale leaves stripped from the vein. Food processor or strong arms and a grater

Chop the kale finely and put in a large bowl and leave it.

Then chop all other ingredients into quarters or eighths.  Then put into the food processor and grate ALL the things.

Dump grated fruits and veggies into the bowl and mix together.

You can put any bottled salad dressing on this, but the one i make for this is fairly simple and has a good flavor balance.

Put equal parts balsamic vinegar and olive oil in a bowl, add a splash of apple cider vinegar and a sprinkle of salt and pepper to taste.   Stit furiously with a fork until the oil and vinegar emulsify and thicken. I aim for about 3 tablespoons of liquid for each part but you can do more or less.

Mix thoroughly so all salad is coated and serve.

I love peeling beets because they look so weird.
