Are you ready to join Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution? The celebrity chef has started a worldwide campaign to get kids (and adults!) to eat more healthfully. Today, I’m supporting his efforts by borrowing his recipe for a super simple salad that is as colorful as it is good for you!
Sarah’s Tip of the Day:
You’ll start by shredding beets, red cabbage, carrots, white cabbage, and pears in a food processor before arranging them on a serving platter. Next, whisk mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, and oil to make your dressing before seasoning it with salt, pepper, Worcestershire, and hot sauce. Add walnuts and herbs to your plate of vegetables before tossing everything with the dressing. Color yourself ready for dinner!

Yield: Serves 8
2 raw medium beets (any color), trimmed, scrubbed, and quartered
1/4 red cabbage, quartered
2 large carrots, scrubbed and trimmed
1/4 white cabbage, quartered
2 pears, stems removed and quartered
1 cup walnut halves, roughly bashed
2 handfuls fresh curly parsley or mint, chopped
For The Dressing
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
2 teaspoons mustard
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Sea salt and ground pepper
Put a coarse grater attachment into a food processor and push ingredients through in the following order (to stop the beets from staining everything): beets, red cabbage, carrots, white cabbage, and pears. (If your food processor is a bit small, do this in batches.) Turn vegetables out onto a platter so you get a pile of rainbow colors. Mix the mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, and oil, then season with salt, pepper, Worcestershire, and hot sauce. Add walnuts and herbs and toss everything together until you get a big, beautiful plate of dressed vegetables.
