Russian Beet Salad with Salmon Patties (20%) & Huge Alkaline Salad (80%)

I think it's good to start collecting some great recipes that will include some goodies that are harvested in fall. 

Beet Salad, Salmon Patties, and Alkaline Salad

This meal contains 3 easy yummy parts:

  1. Russian Beet Salad
  2. Salmon Parsley Patties go to 20-30%
  3. Huge Alkaline Salad

Yes, this whole recipe is not vegan because it contains salmon (the only non vegan ingredient here that you can replace easily with veggie burgers or any other alternative you would like). This recipe is great for those who just start incorporate healthy food to their diet or if you have non-vegan guests for a dinner.

Serious tips:

  • to fast the whole process you can: 1) buy frozen veggie/salmon burgers and 2) you can buy cooked beets (Costco has them) but they are not as flavorful as those from the oven.
  • it's even better to bake beets ahead of time so that they will have time to chill down. 

Remember - salad is a very important part of the meal!

Acid-Alkaline content of this meal: I was creating this meal based on 80/20 principle (or could be also 70/30). So the beets and patties are on the acidic side (beets are root vegetable (contains carbs) that is well cooked and patties are cooked, they are made of salmon). But we will surround our 20% with huge beautiful raw alkaline salad which will enrich our meal with alkaline minerals, alkaline water (from cucumbers, bell pepper), lot's of vitamins and great fiber! So, the meal will be very satisfying, healthy and easy to digest at the same time! 

Five Step Process:

  1. Prepare your beets:

Beetroot Salad Ingredients 

You can go to Russian Beetroot Salad to check more details on this recipe. Or here is your quick guide:

Estimate approximately as follows: one beet for one serving.

Bake your 4-5 rootbeets in the oven at the 400 °F for approx. 1-2 hours depending how big the beets are (I use Unbleached Totally Chlorine-Free (TCF) Paper). You can check the with knife or tooth stick if they are ready. Of course you can steam the beets but in the oven they will be more flavorful and color is so rich!


  1. While beets in the oven let's do salmon patties

 Salmon Parsley Patties

For 10-12 patties you will need:

  • 5-6 oz salmon (wild caught is best, farm-raised salmon is actually very unhealthy)
  • 1/2 bunch of parsley
  • 1/2 - 1/4 red onion 
  • 3-4 Tbsp. oats
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste

Cut first parsley and onion in a food processor, add salmon and process until you have consistency like ground turkey or so. Add sea salt and pepper. Also, if you are using frozen salmon make sure to get rid of excess water.

Form little patties and lightly roast them on both sides on the sauce pan using coconut oil. Cover with lid to make sure the patties cooked through very well.  

  1. Arrange the salad while beets are cooling down from the oven (3-5 minutes):

Let the beets cool enough to handle (you can cut them in half or quoters and put outside if the weather is cooler then at home).

Be creative with your salad! My salad goes like this: combine mix greens with cut cucumber (the most alkalizing food!) and yellow bell pepper. Add pomegranate and hemp seeds. Salt and drizzle any healthy oil, click here for quick guide for good oils. Squeeze some lemon, lime or grapefruit on the salad. As you can see I just added some whole grapefruit slices to this dish!

  1. Assemble Beet Salad (5 minutes):

  • Peel and shred your 4-5 baked beets:) Add handful of walnuts (you can replace with pecans but I think walnuts work the best). 
  • Add 5-7 slightly soaked prunes cut in smaller pieces.
  • Add 1-3 Minced garlic glove.
  • Cut 1/4 parsley in tiny pieces (I like to add it a lot!).
  • Drizzle cold-pressed olive oil and sea salt.
  • Mix all well together!

Place everything in the plate and enjoy your dinner!


Remember 80/20 rule and rock-and-roll!
