  2. 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  3. 1/2 cup chopped mixed herbs, such as chives and parsley
  4. Kosher salt
  5. Coarsely ground pepper
  6. 1/2 pound carrots, peeled and very thinly sliced, preferably on a mandoline
  7. 2 medium golden beets, peeled and very thinly sliced, preferably on a mandoline
  8. 6 ounces white button or cremini mushrooms, very thinly sliced
