Festive Waldorf Salad

Since the late 1800s, when this salad was first made at the Waldorf Hotel in New York City, it has gone through many transformations. The core ingredients, however, did manage to survive over the years. This hearty salad is easily adaptable for those living on raw foods by replacing the traditional mayonnaise-based dressing with some version of a raw nut-based mayo.

Creamy and Crunchy Sunchoke Salad

This crunchy salad tastes surprisingly similar to egg and potato salad, but it doesn’t contain either. Sunchokes, which are widely available in the fall and early winter, are a good raw substitute for potatoes, while cashews and turmeric bring the color and texture of eggs to this dish.

Sweet and Sour Kale Salad

Kale never goes out of fashion: it is your “dark leafy green health insurance” in a bunch. This nutritional powerhouse is available at the stores year-round, and is a rich source of Vitamins A and C, calcium, manganese, lutein and iron.

Spicy and Sweet Cabbage Salad

Spicy citrus dressing combined with summer vegetables makes it more than just a salad: it makes it an experience.  Light and refreshing, it’s also quick to make, especially if you can delegate the chore of chopping to your food processor.
