Layered salad and creamy green dressing

We all know I love salads, I eat them daily. Yesterday I wanted something a little bit different so I made this layered salad, it was quick easy and delicious.

raw vegan layered salad

Layered Salad (serves 1)

1 Head radicchio chopped

1 Cup cauliflower florets chopped

2 Large handfuls of sprouts

1/2 Avocado diced (optional)

Layer the ingredients in a bowl starting with the radicchio and ending with sprouts, add dressing to each layer.

raw vegan dressing

Creamy Green Dressing (serves 1)

1/2 Small red pepper

1 Medium kirby cucumber

3 Tablespoons raw cashews

Juice of 1/2 a lemon

1/2 cup cilantro (some stems are fine)

Sea salt to taste

I used a Vita Mix so I didn’t need to add water, if you are using a regular blender add small amounts of water to get the blender going. Blend ingredients until creamy and enjoy.

I love radicchio, I enjoy the slightly bitter flavor and crunchy texture. When I need a change I always make a salad with it. If you don’t like radicchio, butter lettuce would work great. I had this with a side of hummus and some crackers. It was a great meal.

Before I go I wanted to thank everyone for their comments and feedback on my last post. I got great comments via Twitter from some of you who are living in families with mixed diets. I guess there are a lot of us out there.

  • That dressing sounds amazing… so creamy with the cashews. Bookmarked – thanks!

  • i’m not a huge salad fan,… but i think its mainly because my salads tend to not be very creative, if we were neighbors, i would totally knock on your door to borrow a cup of salad 🙂

    • LOL, I could picture you doing that. I’d give you two cups, I’m generous like that.

  • Your salads are so creative, yet simple. I’ve been making it a point to eat more salads at home and you’ve given me a lot of fresh ideas. Thanks.

    • Thank you, that’s sweet of you to say.
