Root Salad

Rutabaga is an interesting vegetable resembling a cross between a potato and turnip, but truly originated as a cross between a cabbage and a turnip. It is an excellent source of potassium (1,177 mg/386 g). Potassium is a commonly low electrolyte in the western diet, even a healthy one, but rutabaga is third (on my list) after coconut water and bananas for high potassium levels.  It is higher in potassium than potatoes, a commonly recommended food for potassium by dietitians.


1 large or two small rutabagas

1 butternut squash

1 fennel bulb

2 T apple cider vinegar
