Raw Salad Recipes

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.

Kale Salad with Sauerkraut and Mushrooms

Adding mushrooms to the kale salad gives the feeling of fullness we usually expect from a meal, while sauerkraut adds the zing and healthy probiotics to the mix.

Jerusalem Artichoke Salad

This salad tastes surprisingly like tuna salad, but without the tuna.

Garden Fresh Salad with Vinaigrette Dressing

Harvest some lettuce, radishes, and dill from your garden, and maybe cherry tomatoes and carrots, too, and put together a light salad, that is easy to make for a picnic or potluck.

 

Cauliflower Tabbouleh

While traditional tabbouleh is prepared using bulgur wheat, we’ll make a lighter version using cauliflower instead.

Russian Pickled Tomatoes

This is an old favorite from my motherland. These raw cultured vegetables can be a good addition to your menu as you are transitioning to the raw food diet. The enzymes in cultured vegetables also help digest other foods eaten with them. And best of all: it’s very easy to make and you will not have to use your stove!
