The Amazing Fantastic Raw Vegan Salad!

The title says it all! This salad blew my taste buds away. Jerry and I kept coming back for more! Hearty, healthy and delicious. My body craves nutritious meals like this! Full of Quinoa, nuts, seeds, and fresh organic produce!

  1. Handful of Organic Green Baby Lettuce 
  2. Handful of sprouts (We grow ours!)
  3. 1/4-1/2 onion, chopped
  4. 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  5. 2 organic carrots - peeled, grated
  6. 1/4 organic cucumber - sliced / chopped thin
  7. 3 radishes, sliced / chopped thin
  8. 1 cup pre-cooked and cooled quinoa (water, garlic salt and pepper)
  9. Small handful slivered almonds & raisins & flax seeds.
  10. 10 organic cherry tomatoes
  11. 2 sheets Trader Joe's Roasted Seaweed sliced (Opt: Has a "fishy" taste)
  12. Trader Joe's Soy Ginger Dressing
  • Combine ingredients 1 - 7 in order listed above. 
  • Toss the salad.
  • Place quinoa on the outside of the salad to frame the salad.
  • Place silvered almonds & raisins on the inside of the quinoa. 
  • Place small handful of flax seeds in the center of the salad.
  • Place cherry tomatoes on top of the quinoa, spacing out.
  • Place sliced Roasted seaweed in-between the cherry tomatoes.
  • Serve with dressing of choice - we found TJ's Soy Ginger Dressing went really well!
