Such a thing as a tasty blended salad?
Posted by: Delta223 ()

Hi all,

I recently started eating more raw foods. I started with green smoothies. After some initial trials, I was able to produce a healthy and filling fruit vegetable blend The key for me was a 70/30 ratio of fruit to vegetable. Non-fat plain yogurt also helped immensely.

I want to go all the way and create blended salad. I'm not a vegetable fan and also not much of a cook though, so it will not be easy.

Has anyone found a good mix of ingredients for an enjoyable blended salad?

Thanks

I've been making them for years, though I call them soups. smiling smiley Usually some type of fat (like avocado or olive oil) is needed to make them taste real good, but others you don't need it. Here's a couple:

Celery Tomato Soup
1 large or 2 sm Tomato
2-3 Celery Stalks
4-8 oz Orange juice
Garlic
Water (or more juice/tomato)

Cucumber Soup
1 Cucumber
2-4 cups Greens
½-1 Avocado
Cilantro, Parsley or Scallion
1-2 Garlic cloves
½ tsp Salt
4 cups Water
Optional: Lemon Juice

I make something like Gilmore Girl's cucumber soup, but the lemon or lime juice is not optional. It gives the soup a really great fresh taste. I also add a bit of hot pepper like jalapeno.
