I wanted something light to prepare and have in the fridge for the week. After looking through 3-4 cookbooks without being inspired, I decided to turn to Pinterest. Now, I’m not the greatest “pinner” out there, but when I have some time I love going through Pinterst boards. It can be such a huge inspiration AND a huge time sucker, know what I mean?
Anyway, I have a great Raw Veggie Salad to share. If you read my latest post on Detox, this salad would be the perfect thing to eat on my version of a detox. It’s light, crunchy, tasty and super healthy. If you are having it for lunch, throw on some protein like grilled chicken, shrimp, salmon or your choice. Today, for lunch, I added some crunchy, roasted Pepitas. Really tasty.
RAW VEGGIE SALAD
What You Need:
1 small purple cabbage, shredded
1 hearts of romaine section, shredded
2 cups shredded carrots
1 acocado, peeled and chopped
Light Salad Dressing (such as what I used below)
Light Vinagrette Dressing:
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/8 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Mix the shredded cabbage, romaine and carrots in a bowl. Top with chopped avocado. Drizzle with light salad dressing just before serving.
Tangy, crunchy and perfect for these dog days of summer.
