This is perfect for those on the raw food diet or those looking to detox for a couple of days. This is so good for you, I feel angelic after I eat it, no matter what other bad things I might have done that day!
UPDATED -- Please note: The nutritional information (fat and calories) on this salad for each serving is incorrect because it was calculated using all the salad dressing for 4-6 servings of the salad. The recipe makes lots of extra dressing.
This salad is wonderful! My husband and I came up with the ingredients for the salad itself to go along with a delicious maple dressing from the book "What's cooking America". All the flavors of the different ingredients blend and coalesce into the most mellow, nutty sweet flavor, that is very autumnal and heavenly! And very nutritious too. You really need all the ingreds. to achieve the wonderful flavor. Make sure you toast the pecans, as the toasting really brings out the flavor, and let the jicama matchsticks sit in the ice water a bit to really intensify their crunchy sweetness.Make sure all the ingredients are very fresh. (I buy prewashed/packaged baby spinach to speed things up and dispense with the rinsing and drying). Vary salad ingredient amounts to taste (we never measure). I hope you enjoy it as much as we have.
Quick, simple, and easy to prepare. This is a great dish to bring to a potluck or cookout. It vanishes every time! I recommend tossing the dressing and ingredients with the lettuce and spinach right before serving.
I adore this salad! For a dinner party, this could be assembled early in the day and drizzle the dressing on just before serving. Toss the avocado and apples in a little lemon juice to prevent oxidation.
A delightfully different slaw style salad. You can use more or less horseradish to suit your taste. I love to serve this as a pre-dinner salad spooned on top of a bed of watercress or part of a large buffet.
