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.
Add a splash of color with vegetables to this cool creamy soup, and you’ll be surprised to find that your mood will brighten up as well.
These two recipes are rather versatile. Try crackers or “meat” balls instead of patties. Use the sauce as a salad dressing, dip for crackers and crudités, or as a sauce for lettuce wraps.

Serve this versatile pesto with dehydrated crackers, slices of cucumber, zucchini, carrot sticks and celery stalks, or use as a sauce for zucchini spaghetti.
These petite stuffed mushrooms can be served as an appetizer, or become part of the main course when accompanied by a salad. Either way, they are filling and delicious.
Radish leaves make an excellent addition to a 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.
This cool soup is excellent if you are living in a particularly hot and humid area!
I am usually one for whipping up quick simple dishes, but whenever my son, Nick, visits I always ask him to make this amazing dish from my book Beautiful on Raw-UnCooked Creations. This dish has such a rich flavor, you will definitely remember it for a long time to come. Not to be indulged in too often!
