So, the goal is to eat 1 whole pound of raw veggies a day! Gulp! It seems like a lot! So, I’ve been experimenting with ways to make it all new and exciting. Always experimenting with new dressings that have no oil and don’t taste horrible; this one was pretty tasty, and I managed to eat the whole bowl, so not too shabby!
3 leaves curly Kale
1/4 carrot, sliced with mandolin
1/4 beet, sliced with mandolin
1 ear corn, kernals cut from cobb
1 Tbls raisins
1/4 pomegranate, seeded
1 tsp raw pumpkin seeds
1/8 c navy beans, drained
1 small McIntosh Apple
1/8 c raw tahini
Juice of 1 lime
Splash of Braggs Liquid Aminos (you can use soy sauce if you are not gluten free)
1/4 c Apple Cider Vinegar
Break Kale into bite sized pieces, and toss all other ingredients on top. Pour desired dressing amount onto salad, and toss to coat. I got 2 servings out of the dressing, but you might get more or less depending on your taste. Feel free to add other ingredients: red onion, cabbage, peppers, cucumbers, diced jalapenos, jicama. All make excellent additions with flavor and texture! The goal is no salt or oils used, so getting creative is key!
