Recipe Author: Beautiful on Raw

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.

Russian-Style Layered Mushroom Salad

Recipe Author: Beautiful on Raw

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.

The trick to this salad is to mince all the ingredients as finely as possible. This mixes the flavors in the best way.
