Beet, carrot and zucchini slaw

I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner. It's the easiest summer dish to make--just throw two or three big carrots, three or four small (peeled, raw) beets, and a zucchini in your food processor. You don't even have to peel the carrots or the zucchini. I used the shredding blade.

Then I made a sort-of dressing; two parts mustard, four parts red wine vinegar, and a little horseradish. Mix, then whisk in two parts olive oil. Season to taste. Mix that into the slaw.

I also added a handful of chopped parsley, and salt and pepper. It's cheap, healthy, fast, and not drowning in mayonnaise like most slaw. A perfect summer dish!
