    Oh — and a question: Is there any ingredient you would recommend avoiding for this salad? (I’m wondering about onions, for example.) Thanks!

    I’ve made this salad according to the recipe several times and really love the flavor combination, texture, and visual presentation. But today, I decided to try the “throw everything you have in the fridge into it” method. I was nervous, because I had so few of the ingredients in the original recipe. I had carrots, parsley, romaine, zucchini, lemon juice, tomatoes, almonds, and some leftover chopped portobello mushroom soaked in nama shoyu. I put everything in but the tomatoes in the food processor and pulsed, then I chopped a tomato and put it on top. It tastes delicious! And because the lemon and the nama shoyu combined so nicely, I didn’t even need a dressing.

    I want to tell you that your raw food course and instructive recipes like this one have made me so much braver about creating my own concoctions, which is really where you start to have fun in the kitchen. And since we have to eat every day, that makes a life so much more enjoyable! Thanks, Russell.
