Ingredients

  • For the vegan raw salad:
  • 3 oz Organic spring mix and baby spinach (Half & Half Mix) or other fresh greens of your choice
  • 1 medium to large cucumber washed and sliced into rounds
  • 1 large watermelon radish washed, sliced into rounds, and then quartered
  • 12 or more grape tomatoes washed
  • 1/2 to 1 cup soy feta cheese dairy-free almond feta cheese, tofu, or other of your choice, crumbled or chunked (Cooked quinoa also makes a great substitute for vegans. If you are not vegan, you can use regular feta cheese, shaved Parmesan cheese or other of your choice)
  • A few leaves of fresh basil to garnish optional
  • For the citrus vinaigrette:
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil or other vegetable oil of your choice
  • 3 tablespoons fresh squeezed orange or lemon juice
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch freshly ground black pepper
  • 1-2 teaspoons maple syrup or agave nectar (if you are not vegan you can use a pinch of sugar instead if desired)

Instructions

  • Place greens on a serving plate, and arrange the other vegetables on top of the greens as follows: cucumber rounds along the upper-rim of the plate, quartered radish distributed on both sides, and tomatoes along the lower-rim.
  • Prepare the vinaigrette by placing all ingredients into a small jar with lid securely fastened and then shaking well until homogeneous. Alternatively, place juice, salt, pepper, and maple syrup into a small bowl and whisk while pouring in the oil slowly. Whisk well until mixture is homogeneous.
  • This vegan raw salad should be dressed right before serving, or served on the side. Yield: 2 if served as main dish, or 4 if served as a side dish.

Recipe Notes

Suggestions: Depending on your diet or needs/likes, roasted nuts, hard-boiled eggs, or shrimp/fish can be added to the salad or simply used as a substitution for cheese.
