This shredded, low-amine beet and carrot salad has a cumin and lemony kick to it that makes it a great side dish for savory main dishes. Beet and carrot are naturally low-amine, and the beets add a sweetness to the salad from its natural sugars, particularly if you choose organic beets (organic beets are much higher in flavor).

1 beet (about 2C)

8 medium carrots (about 2C)

1/4 C safflower oil

1/2 C parsley, finely minced

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp ascorbic acid

1 1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp cumin seeds

dash cayenne
