Raw Foods Recipes Part 3: Super Simple

These recipes only take minutes to prepare and my kids have really liked them.

Cut cucumber with a mandoline or slice into wide, thin strips with a knife

Options for filling:
Apple slices
Kiwi slices
Other fruit

Cut fruit into small strips and put inside the cucumber.  Roll up!

I don't have a mandoline, so I tried cutting the cucumber into the right size strip with a knife.  It was too thick to roll up, so I cut them into rectangle size little "plates" for the other ingredients to sit on.

I found this recipe in the book The Raw Gourmet:

Fruits, Veges and Dip

Apples, bananas, celery, carrots or anything else you want to dip.

Fruit Dip

1 banana
½ avocado
½ cup raspberries
4 strawberries

Combine in blender.

Can also use extra strawberries in place of raspberries.

    1 cup zucchini noodles, from about 1/2 zucchini, spiralized
    1/2 cup diced tomato
    1/2 cup diced avocado, peeled and seeded
    1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
    1/8 teaspoon rosemary, dry
    1/4 teaspoon oregano, dry
    1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

The kids didn't like the herbs, so I left those out for them.  They then declared this "the best salad ever that we should have for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day!"
