Raw Salad with Honey Lemon Dressing

April 26, 2012


This is probably one of the brightest, most colorful salads I’ve eaten. I love how the vivid orange, red and green make this salad seem so cheery. I also love how this salad gives me tons of energy and really fills me up, though it’s super light.

My sister says I can’t call it a salad if there is no lettuce. I don’t know if I agree. Seems like a salad to me. What do you think?

2 cups broccoli florets
2 cups baby carrots
2 cups cauliflower florets
1 cup toasted sunflower seeds
1 cup dried sweetened cranberries
juice of 1 lemon
2 Tablespoons honey

Directions: The preparation for this salad is simple. In a food processor, chop the broccoli, cauliflower and carrots until fine. It’s best to do each vegetable separately for consistency. Place the chopped vegetables into a mixing bowl.


Next, add the dried cranberries, sunflower seeds, lemon juice and honey. Mix well.


Chill and serve.


Garnish with extra cranberries and a lemon peel (if desired).


This salad can be made the night before and will happily ride along with you to the office.

Do you think that you could chop up some sesame stick and add them in there to give it a little bit of crunch??

They have lots of crunch as is, but you could certainly add more. Sesame sounds tasty!

I love the raw salads! There’s a restaurant here that makes a similar concoction and they call it “veggie trail mix.” Such a fresh, bright side for spring!
