There’s a lot of chopping to this salad, I’ll say that up front. And yes, chopping vegetables can be time consuming. The plus side is that this dish is 100% raw, so no need to wait for the oven to heat up and the food to cook.
The salad calls for a lot of creativity – use what’s in season, what looks fresh, and what you can find organically. The rest is basically a personal art creation or kitchen experiment that can’t go wrong.
-Okra (2-3 cups, chopped)
-1 Heirloom tomato
-Celery ( a few stalks)
-Cauliflower (2-3 cups, chopped)
-Lemon juice (1 fresh lemon)
-Red pepper flakes
Chop all of the vegetables and combine in a bowl. Mix well. Squeeze lemon juice on top. Add a bit of black pepper, garlic powder, and some red pepper flakes. No oil needed and absolutely no animal products used. Easy!
Nutritionally, the okra and cauliflower bring a lot to this dish. Okra is high in dietary fiber, vitamins A, C, and K. Okra also contains B-complex vitamins. Cauliflower delivers a healthy dose of vitamin C, K, and folate. It’s also a good source of vitamin B6.
