|Delicious, tasty, nutritious! (and yes, I eat the entire thing myself)|
This is my favourite raw vegan salad. It's a play on a waldorf salad, without the mayo (although you could use vegan mayo if you wanted). If you're not raw or not vegan (or not raw vegan) the salad is still delicious, especially for lunch! I might add some chopped chicken if I was in the mood:)
This salad is crunchy, sweet, salty and sour. It's the perfect combination- colour, satisfying mouth feel, tasty and it takes forever to eat (which is good because it gives you time to digest and receive signals from your stomach that you're full!)
Raw Vegan "Waldorf" Salad
1 apple (use a crispy apple- Gala is my favourite), chopped
1/2 head of celery (about 4 or 5 stalks), chopped
Handful raw walnuts, chopped *omit if allergic
Handful raw, pitted dates (about 5), chopped
Lemon juice (just need a squirt)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Dash of sea salt
How to do it:
Add together all your chopped ingredients (apple, celery, walnuts, dates).
Add a squirt of lemon juice (will help the apples not to brown too quickly), a dash of sea salt and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon.
Mix gently and enjoy!
