Raw Summer Salad


I'm jumping into the raw again! Summer is the perfect time to make lots of raw salads to go with your picnics and parties. Raw food is the ultimate health food and there's nothing like giving your body the food it deserves.

The nice thing about this salad is you can put anything in it and on it. This combo just floats-my-boat today. If you like green cabbage or prefer romaine lettuce, substitute away! My favorite quick dressing is usually a fresh lemon squeezed, olive oil and fresh ground sea salt and pepper.

The one helpful little kitchen item that I LOVE is this little thingy:

This is a OXO Good Grips hand held mandoline slicer. It has 3 thickness levels for slicing. It's less than $15 retail and I know Bed Bath and Beyond carry it. So with a 20% off coupon or $5 off coupon, you can get it for even less.
Use with care. It is very sharp!

Raw Summer Salad
1/2 head purple cabbage
3 carrots
4 mini red bell peppers or 1/2 large
4 TBS fresh parsley, chopped

Mandoline slice away! Toss with your favorite dressing.

Of course you can also use your food processor's slicer blade.
