If you’re not one who usually picks up a bag of parsnips at the grocery store, you will be after trying out this recipe. And I mean it. It’s a total game-changer, a┬árenaissance of root vegetables, a dish that is always empty at your potlucks or dinner parties- and the best part it- it only takes about 10 minutes to make.


While I named this recipe “Parsnip Salad” it really is more like a coleslaw I think. It has the crunch, it has the zing, but there’s an extra mouth-watering element that comes with the combination of the spice of the parsnips mixed with the dressing. It’s too exciting not to try out. So without further ado- here is the recipe. If you end up trying it out- post a picture on Instagram and tag @hillside.gardens so we can see your creations and hear how much you enjoyed it!!





1 pound parsnips

1/2 cup parsley roughly chopped

1/4 cup minced red onion

3 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon vinegar

2 tablespoons olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste



Use a vegetable peeler to remove the peel of the parsnips.

Shave thin ribbons of parsnip until you reach the core.

In a large bowl, combine shaved parsnips with parsley, red onion, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, and olive oil.

Toss until well combined and add salt and pepper to taste.
