Raw Veggie Chopped Salad (Oil Free)
A Raw Veggie Chopped Salad is perfect for summer parties, potlucks and BBQs. Full of flavor and no lettuce needed. You can easily double the recipe to feed a huge crowd.
This is the perfect salad for summer when peppers, cucumbers and radishes are growing plentiful in gardens and can be found in every farmers market. The chopped broccoli, sunflower seeds and hemp seeds add real staying power to fill you up without filling you out! And, I love the addition of red seedless grapes for a little sweetness.
It’s best to make this salad ahead of time and let it mingle with the dressing for at least an hour or two. I like to toss the salad once or twice during this time so the dressing completely covers all the veggies. The veggies will start to soak up the dressing and soften just a bit, while still maintaining their crunch.
Not only is this veggie chopped salad healthy and delicious, but look at all those beautiful colors! Healthy eating advocates often say to “eat the rainbow” and I’m here to tell you that this is the perfect way to start!
