Such a simple way to get a good variety of different vitamins and minerals into your system in just one meal.
Black beans make a great protein base, which is important, since the salad is vegan. Peppers are a great source of carotenoids, vitamins C, B6 and E, as well as health-supportive sulfur and antioxidants.
Tomatoes are rich in nutrients, they have antioxidant properties, vitamin and mineral content, improving digestion, eye sight, preventing skin, hair and bone problems (thanks to biotin) and high blood pressure. Corn is a good source of fiber, antioxidants and carotenoids, supporting digestion and regulating blood sugar levels.
Avocados are considered a super-food, they are loaded with fiber, antioxidants and most importantly omega-3 fatty acids. They are incredibly rich in nutrients like pantothenic acid, copper, folate, potassium, vitamins B6, C, E and K. This salad is pure health in a bowl.

You can actually make a double batch and use it for other dishes (e.g. Courgette Pasta). Although not technically Raw, I have recently started caramelizing citrus fruits like lemons, oranges and grapefruits, which is such a simple way to add in an indispensable source of nutrients to your salads - citrus fruits help the body to maintain its immune function, why not try it out when you make your next salad?
Another tip... if you dip them in honey/coconut sugar/ sugar and grill them in a hot dry pan, the citrus aroma will intensify, enriching the taste of any dish, be it a salad, a dessert, roasted vegetables or fish.
Roasted grapefruits add a pleasant sweet bitterness to the salad, while creamy avocado and pesto dressing are in charge of binding everything together. As for the health benefits, kale, grapefruits and avocado are good for you.

Raw Crunch Salad with Orange Dressing
Raw Food Recipe Salad Blend - Preparation time: 30 minutes
Keeps for 4 days when kept in an airtight container in the fridge
For the salad:
For the dressing:
Prepare the cauliflower, broccoli and red cabbage by removing the main stem and cutting into large chunks ready for the food processor.
In individual batches, separately pulse broccoli, red cabbage and cauliflower for around 15 seconds each until the veggies become bite sized. Add the chopped contents of each batch into a large bowl.
For the dressing: add all ingredients to the food processor and blend for about 20 seconds or until it is emulsified and no chunks of ginger remain.
Now just pour the dressing over the salad ingredients and gently stir together. You can add more orange juice if it seems a little dry, but try not to over dress!

This has to to be one of my all time favorites, a simple and classic side that goes with just about anything.
I like to enjoy as part of a buddha bowl for lunch teamed up with some simple green salad and often roasted Mediterranean vegetables and quinoa.
This dish is just so versatile you can really add it to any kind of salad for added crunch and flavour.
I like to make a big batch of this coleslaw at the beginning of the week, I just pop it in an airtight container and it should keep a good few days. These kinds of recipes are a great way of ensuring a healthy and nutritious diet while working to a hectic schedule. My mantra is simply prep prep prep, personally I think it works so well to make a few of these “sides” at the beginning of the week, you just chuck a little of each into a lunch box every day and bingo you´ve got a quick, and nutritious lunch to take with you in minutes.
This coleslaw may look like it will take you hours to prepare by carefully chopping all the veggies but let me tell you when using a food processor it really couldn’t be any easier to prepare!
Prep time: 10 minutes total cooking time
Separately blend each vegetable in a food processor ideally using the slicing function. Combine all the veggies in a large bowl then simply stir in the yogurt, mustard and lemon juice. Season to taste.
You can jazz this up with a handful of sunflower or pumpkin seeds for added protein or even apple and raisins to curb those sweet cravings.
