As healthy as big raw salads may be, sometimes they are really time consuming to chew thoroughly and can be a lot for the system to break down.
Also known as a blended raw soup, this meal is great while traveling or enjoying at home. It’s been a favorite of mine since I got into raw foods five years ago, and you can definitely experiment with different veggies and flavors to make it your own! It’s hard to mess this one up, so blend away!
Blended Salad (makes one large serving)
-handful (or two) of greens: mixed baby lettuce, baby spinach, etc.
-1/2 bell pepper
-1 tomato or 1/2 small box cherry tomatoes
-2 stalks celery
-lemon juice, to taste
-pinch of sea salt
-herbs of choice: I like using italian seasoning and garlic powder
-1/2 medium avocado
-optional: soaked sundried tomatoes, sprouts, dulse, nutritional yeast (for cheesy flavor)
Place all ingredients except avocado into a high speed blender or nutri bullet and blend until broken up. Add avocado and blend again for desired creamy consistency. You can sprinkle with extra italian herbs and nutritional yeast and then top with the other half of sliced avocado if you’d like!
