Street Salad

As part of the research I did into raw vegan diets for a college project, I had to experience eating a 100% raw vegan diet for 1 week.

On Day 4, I was feeling really good; physically, I felt lighter and full of energy, while mentally, I feel really alert and focused.

A lot of research suggests the many benefits of eating a raw vegan diet, such as weight control and enhancing the body’s ability to prevent and fight many chronic diseases.

Although I don’t think this is something I could follow 100% because I love the comfort of warm food, especially on a cold day, this week’s experiment has reminded me of how important it is to include more phytonutrient-rich raw foods in a regular diet and that there are so many incredibly delicious ways of preparing raw meals.

I expected to feel hungry all the time, but the food I was eating is so tasty that it was satisfying all my senses. Plus, there are some amazing treats you can have on a raw vegan diet, and I’ll let you into my little raw chocolate secret in the next couple of days!!

I love this little street salad recipe, it was a meal in itself for us today, but it’s also really good as a starter for dinner parties.

It’s a salad canapé!

The dressing is also just unbelievably delicious. Happy munching!



2 mini gem lettuces

1 small packet of cherry tomatoes

1/2 cucumber

4 sundried tomatoes

1/2 avocado

4 sprigs of spring onions


2 tbsp shelled hemp seeds

1 tsp Nutritional Yeast

a good squeeze of lemon (adjust to taste)

1/2 tsp tahini

2 tbsp Olive Oil (also lovely with Avocado Oil)

1-2 tbsp water depending on the consistency of the dressing you prefer

a grind of Himalayan salt (to taste)

Peel back the mini gem lettuce leaves and arrange them on a plate. Chop up the rest of the salad ingredients and mix together well to make the avocado a bit creamy.

Blend all the dressing ingredients together in a food processor or with a hand blender.

Place the chopped veg mixture into the mini gem lettuce leaves and add a drizzle of the dressing.

Enjoy! xx
