High Raw Food ~ Apple Broccoli Cucumber Salad

Today’s ABC salad is visually vibrant, crunchy, with sweet and savory flavors. In other words, simply delicious. I particularly enjoyed the combination of apple, broccoli and walnuts. The slight crunch of parboiled broccoli, dressed in balsamic vinegar is remarkably good.

Apple Broccoli Cucumber Salad

Bring together 1 chopped apple, 1 peeled and chopped cucumber, fistful of boiled lima beans, 1/2 cup broccoli florets (boil for 1-2 mts), 2 tbsps chopped spring onion whites and greens, orange segments, chopped coriander, 1 1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper to taste, 1/2 tbsp honey or any sweetener of your choice, few toasted walnuts.

    Your day sounds like something fit for the Yogis…so Sathvik in nature…and tender coconut water…now do I miss India more than ever…

  2. Sailu, As always, thanks for these wonderful raw food recipes. I’ve tried to follow these on Mondays as you have, but have encountered a problem — I still have to cook regular food for hubby and kids, and by evening find myself succumbing to temptation and eating their food.
    I was wondering what works for you — is it willpower, or maybe your family is following this diet too? Would appreciate your input. Thanks.

    My family is not following the diet, Sarita. I guess, its more will power, telling myself that I am trying to cleanse my system. 🙂

    Cook limited quantity, just sufficient for the rest of the family. Prepare food that you are not really fond of. Set the table, let your family serve food to themselves and be away from the room. Go outside the home, or on the terrace and take a light stroll and have some quiet time to yourself. Carry a bottle of water and sip on it. Get your kids to challenge you to keep up to the Monday high raw food diet and that should motivate you to keep at it. And, Sarita, you are doing fine by staying on high raw food for 2 meals and eating a cooked meal for dinner. Maybe you can go with a healthy soup.

  3. hai sailu garu me too frm vizag, ur recipes are very good
    can i know where did u get broccoli so that i can get it frm there
    till now i didnt find it in vizag

    Prasuna garu, you will find it sometimes in the freezer section of Spencer’s Mart (near the stadium). They usually keep red and yellow capsicum, chinese cabbage, celery, lettuce and broccoli. But you will not find it on a regular basis, only a couple of times in a month.

  4. WOW,..I should certainly appreciate you for strictly following the raw diet..As for me I am sure I would nt be able to cook something else for my family and make some salads for myself..Even if I do, I would precede the salad with my regular meals,but I dont think I can cut down on my meals .. not atleast now 🙂 Good going,Sailaja.Congratulations.

    I ve recently tasted spinach-cranberry salad. I like it very much. May be you can have it on one of your salad days. I dont know the exact recipe. But I guess its raw spinach, red leaves, cranberries, pistachios tossed in cranberry sauce. May be you can tweak it for the better and try? Thank You..Congrats again..!

  5. Hi Sailu, it feels gr8 to see these spectacular dishes at your blog. I am proud that I am from the same place vizag (although in US from past 4 yrs), felt nostalgic when you mentioned spencer’s near stadium in ur previous replies coz my parents live very close by and thats where I spent my childhood. I always refer to your website when there is a need for a quick meal at home and my husband always loves it 🙂 Congrats and keep up the good work with your blog and hope to see many more wonderful dishes !!!

  6. Hello,
    I have been looking for raw food recipes and am grateful to you for posting these colorful and enticing friut salads.
    However as someone who has to cut down on sugar-I was wondering if you had predominatly veggie salads with just a fruit thrown in for sweetness.
    please post some “‘combo salads” with beans and veggies sprouts,nuts.

  7. Hi Sailu

    Need your suggestion. I would like to buy Food Processor to gift to one of my friend who is getting married this month. (mumbai)

    I was wondering which one to buy. If you are using any food processor or anyone reading this blog is using it.
    Please suggest.

    Thank you for your time


  8. Your Salad Bar with the High Raw Food Counter offering a variety: Carrot-date salad, apple-brocolli-cucumber salad, mixed fruit salad etc is absolutely impressive. I am sure they are going to convert even the fussy kids who generally don’t want salads since yours are so appealing to the eyes as well… wow!
