  • 1/2 cup parsley (roughly chopped)
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)


  1. Use a vegetable peeler to remove the peel of the parsnips. Shave thin ribbons of parsnip until you reach the core.
