1/4 cup sesame seeds
1 medium beet
2 medium carrots
1/4 cup dried* or fresh coconut
3 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp honey
1 tbsp finely chopped fresh mint
salt and pepper to taste

  1. In a dry skillet, toats the sesame seeds until golden.
  2. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  3. Grate beets and carrots and stir together in a large bowl.
  4. Stir in coconut and sesame seeds.
  5. Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.

*If using dried coconut, cover it in hot water and let sit for 5 minutes. Strain and discard liquid.

Nori's Tip: While certain plants appreciate a head start indoors, root vegetables such as carrots and beets need to be direct seeded into your garden.
