Tidbit Raw Vegetable Salad With Toasted Seeds

"Little bits of veggies are so much better than big blocks. Really, its true. I tried a variation of this recipe from the Moosewood Cookbook and was so suprised at the difference chopping, mincing, grating and dicing made to the actual taste of the veggies. This salad is super easy to make and a great change from the same-old lettuce leaves. ps. Variations or omissions of a few ingredients is fine, but the seeds make the salad."

  1. This salad was excellent. I wouldn't change a thing. My daughter and I both loved it. We thought it tasted better without any additional dressing. The toasted nuts and olive oil were enough. Thanks for the recipe.
  2. I loved this. I've used it as written with ranch dressing and I've used the mixture with regular head lettuce. I forgot to buy broccoli so didn't include that in the mixture. For the sesame seeds I used Recipe #53039. Made for Spring 2010 PAC
  3. This is a chewy, super textured salad with lots of flavors that blend nicely. I left out the spinach, radishes and snap peas but minced everything else into super tiny pieces. I do wish I'd added some sprouts. I will agree that the seeds make the salad.


I turned vegetarian when I was 16 years old, and I'm still one 11 years later. I was vegan for about three years, but went back to eating dairy and eggs about 3 years ago. I still have some killer vegan recipes, I'm slow at posting, but eventually I'll have a good library up. For me, being vegetarian is about feeling good and eating for the environment, not being deprived of meat! Hopefully non-veg-heads will like some of the recipes I've posted, I know my boyfriend likes everything I've posted and he's a big meat eater as well :) ps. I'm at high altitude, so the baking recipes may need to be modded a bit.
