2 Healthy, Raw Salad Recipes

http://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-image-colorful-appetizer-image253858362 Healthy, Raw Salad Recipes

Salads are known for being nutritious, but that doesn’t mean they have to be boring! Long gone are the days when health-conscious individuals dined on plain lettuce topped with dressings that weren’t even healthy to begin with. I enjoy so many delightful salads for lunch and dinner, incredible varieties that offer a culinary experience comparable to more complicated artistic entrees.

 Raw salads are Edible Works of Art

Most salads are raw by nature. Often though, well-meaning dieters, and people looking to up their intake of vegetables, prepare salads with processed ingredients, cooked meat toppings, and dairy-laden sauces. While a great salad does incorporate a variety of unique and flavorful mix-ins, these foods should be ones that enhance the nutrient-value of the salad, and not load it down with high-caloric, harmful substances that are void of any vitamins and minerals.

Salads sometimes serve as small side dishes, meant to accompany an already healthy meal and give it a complete serving of fresh vegetables. For this purpose, I love to make a spring mix with organic arugula and romaine, or a mesclun with frisee, dandelion greens, and mizuna. Throw a little handful of sunflower sprouts on the top, and add a simple vinaigrette and I’ve got a delicious veggie portion to add to my plate.

I adore crafting salads that are worthy of a lunch or dinner. For the base, I’ll start with chard, mustard greens, radicchio, and other leaf vegetables, than add generous servings of broccoli sprouts, shredded beats, sauerkraut, and a little sprouted quinoa. One of my favorite raw salad dressings is a simple avocado cream dressing, which is alive and full of nutrients.

Skip the Traditional Salad Toppers and Experiment with New Flavors and Textures
  • I’ve learned that when choosing health, it helps to be open-minded to new flavors, textures, and experiences. Instead of grilling chicken to add to a salad, why not opt for a plant-based protein source, such as a decadent walnut pate or a slice of seasoned tempeh.
  • Make a savory or sweet salad, utilizing antioxidant-rich foods like pomegranate seeds, halved grapes, strawberries, raw pecans, or shredded cabbage.
  • Every day, I make sure to include just a small amount of heart-healthy fats in my meal plan, and salads with chopped avocado, pecans and olive oil are a great way to meet this goal.
Here are a few tasty, raw, and life-giving salad recipes to try at home.
Elaine’s Tasty Tip:
  • When experimenting and trying other ingredients to use in a salad, I find that keeping the ingredients to a maximum of five produces a fresher, more delicious recipe.

A blessing during renovation...
Jan 31, 2012 by Nancy-jo

We love having the Fresh Air Purifier here at the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce office. It was quite a blessing during our recent renovations. The first odor to overcome was the harsh chemical smell used to "clean-up" after the asbestos abatement work. Then there was the dust, three months of dust. Now that the work is done, the Fresh Air Purifier keeps our beautiful new office ...
