Mediterranean Salad with FullyRaw Hummus. Mediterranean Salad with FullyRaw Hummus! Celebrate culture, family, life, passion, and raw food, and share this colorful salad with your family and friends! http://youtu.be/DXWWEJzsjyI
I am half Lebanese and half Ecuadorian, and my family loves to celebrate our culture and LOVES to eat! In my culture, sharing food is a part of our culture; it's a part of the bonding experience. Sharing food is sharing love. When I first went FullyRaw, one of the most difficult things to surpass was denying my mother's Lebanese food. It wasn't that I was desiring the food, but I missed the cultural aspect of sharing a dish and that bond with my family and friends. Also, I wanted to be able to share my new passion for health and raw foods with them. Therefore, I came up with this Mediterranean Salad with Hummus recipe to share with them! Eating cultural dishes doesn't have to be unhealthy, but it can be delicious, colorful, and savory! Hummus is an all-time Arabic favorite, and you can use it as a side dip or a salad dressing! Raw food is beautiful food!
This salad is EPIC, savory, and tasty! It's all about the flavors coming together to celebrate taste, culture, family, passion, and love!
There are a lot of ingredients in this salad because it is all of the flavors that make it absolutely delectable! An infusion of flavor is the Mediterranean way! :)
Ingredients for the Salad:
4-5 cups of thinly sliced romaine and kale
2 cups of cherry tomatoes
4 diced cucumbers
1-2 cups finely chopped cauliflower
1 cup of mint and basil leaves
2 tablespoons of cumin
2-3 cups of colorful bell peppers
Half one red onion
Half cup lemon juice
Optional: raw green olives
Optional: Italian parsley
Ingredients for the Hummus:
1 cup of raw, unhulled sesame seeds
1 cup lemon juice
1 clove of garlic
For the Salad:
Chop and dice all ingredients into a large bowl of your choice. Wood is the Mediterranean way! Mix the ingredients until you see a rainbow salad appear before your eyes!
For the Hummus:
Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender. I am using a Vitamix. If you do not want your hummus to have a green tint, peel it before you blend it. After it's blended, pour your hummus onto your salad or use it as a side dipping sauce and savor!
I hope that you LOVE this recipe and that you are able to share it with your family and friends! Everyone will love this beautiful salad! Hugs!
