To get the most out of the Raw Food Diet, you need to eat plenty of greens. The best way to get greens into your diet is through salads, but your salads have to be tasty in order for you to want to come back for more. My suggestion to everyone is to know how to make a few delicious salad dressings that you can either whip up in a matter of minutes or that you can make a big batch and store it in a glass jar in your refrigerator for a week– then whenever you’re hungry, you can prepare a fabulous salad in just minutes!!! Whatever you do, please stay away from any store-bought salad dressings, they are full of many unwanted ingredients including sugar, trans-fats, msg, chemicals, preservatives, artificial flavors, fillers, etc..
So, today I share with you my absolute favorite salad. I have this salad almost every single day!!! Its easy, low in fat, and made out of pure and fresh ingredients.
The recipe is below as well!
