Looking for a great healthy salad to take to holiday get togethers?
This one is totally raw and has an extensive list of ingredients. The smaller you chop the veggies, the more the flavors will blend.
The dressing can also be made alone and used as a delicious veggie dip.
Both the ingredients and directions are listed below, courtesy of the chef’s You Tube channel.
Ingredients for the Salad:
1-2 Heads of Cauliflower
3 Colored Bell Peppers (Use Less or More as Desired).
1-2 Cartons of Cherry Tomatoes
2-3 Small Cucumbers
1 Head of Celery
Juice of 3-5 Lemons
Half Bunch Green Onions
Half One Red Onion
Handful of Dill
Handful of Chives
Extra Cumin (This is the secret ingredient!)
Ingredients for the Dressing:
Less than a Quarter Cup Pine Nuts
Bunch of Fresh Dill
Bunch of Fresh Chives
Dash of Cumin
One Clove of Garlic (Optional)
For the salad, first finely chop the cauliflower into tiny bits as possible.
Use a food processor to chop the cauliflower into tiny textured and smooth bits.
Finely chop the celery, green onions, bell peppers, jicama, cucumbers, dill, chives, cherry tomatoes, and other lurking ingredients into the salad. The trick is to make sure all the items are chopped as small as possible. The smaller the chop, the more the flavors of the salad will mix together, creating a delicious mess!
Mix up your chopped bits!
When ready, blend all ingredients for the dressing in a vitamix blender and create your creamy creation! Pour the dressing onto the salad and massage it in with all the chopped bits! Enjoy!
For those who are serious about a raw food diet, a great heavy duty blender for chopping, juicing, and blending is needed. The Vitamix is highly rated and has a 5-year warranty. You can check it out here.
