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.

Radish Greens Salad

Radish greens are super high in Vitamin C, calcium and phosphorus and happen to be my favorite greens!

Russian-Style Layered Mushroom Salad

Tired of traditional salads? This recipe puts a whole new spin on the salad theme. The idea for this festive layered salad comes from Russian cuisine.

Traditional Russian salad recipes often include herring, boiled potatoes and mayonnaise. But this healthy variation is chock full of raw goodness. Instead of cooking vegetables, use them in their raw state. Let mushrooms be the substitute for herring and have the avocados stand in for potatoes—more tastily, too! No mayo, either—instead, a nut-based dressing.

A decided improvement in taste and nutrition. A real novelty, too. Your party guests will never have seen or tasted this one! Guaranteed to impress.

Strawberry Salsa Salad

Adding strawberries to the traditional salsa recipe creates a mellow yet tangy delightful dish that can be served with crackers or as a salad.

Radish Greens Salad

Radish leaves make an excellent addition to a salad.

Nick’s Salad

My husband, Nick, has been making this salad for us on a daily basis for many years, and I still love it! I came up with the dressing just last month, and I think it really makes a great combination. The trick to this salad is to mince all the ingredients as finely as possible. This mixes the flavors in the best way.
