Spinach Daikon Olive Salad with Creamy Brazil Nut Dressing

Hello everyone, today I'm giving you a lovely recipe that will fill you up and is very nutritious. I am still about 90% raw and some days 100%. I feel much better than I did a few months ago and I think I am really suited to this lifestyle. My eyes are so clear and so is my skin and most of my aches and pains have cleared up. It is my intention to do this for the whole of 2011 (and probably the rest of my life). In february I am going to do the Gabriel Cousens Phase 1 Rainbow Green Live Food. (For those of you who don't know who Gabriel Cousens is, he is Raw Food Guru and an MD. He has a place called Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center. People go there to rid themselves of diabetes and other chronic diseases.)This means no fruit or anything with any type of sweetener except stevia and also no coconut water!!! I feel that this will be the ultimate cleanse and I'm excited to do it, but a little apprehensive at the idea of no fruit at all. Anyway I'll keep you posted as to when I'm starting.

Here is the Spinach Daikon Recipe.

Spinach Daikon and Olive Salad

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 pound spinach -- washed
1/2 cup olives (your favorite type) -- cut into halves or quarters
1 ripe tomato -- cut into small pieces
1 cup daikon radish -- sliced and peeled cut into 1/4's

Mix all ingredients together in a large salad bowl.

Top with brazil nut dressing. Serve.

NOTES : Daikon is a wonderful digestive help. It has been found to contain enzymes similar to those in our own digestive tracts. It is also a powerful anti-cancer vegetable. It has also been shown to be a decongestant and a diuretic.

Here is the recipe for the Creamy Brazil Nut Dressing.


Brazil Nut Dressing

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1/4 cup Brazil nuts
2 teaspoons miso paste (your favorite type)

Place nuts and miso in the blender, cover with water. The thickness will vary according to how much water you put it. The less water added the more thick it will be.

Add your desired amount of water, I find the best amount is just covering the nuts.

Blend until creamy. Add more water if it's too thick.

Serve over spinach or massaged kale.

NOTES : Brazil nuts are very high in Selenium. Miso is a probiotic.

  1. I always see the huge Brazil nuts in the bulk bin and haven't yet tried them. This dressing looks like a good start, yum!
