Raw Energy Salad

This lovely fresh Raw Energy Salad has always been a favourite here at the cafe and has been featured on our menu many times over the years. You can use any fresh summer veges, or winter salad veges, and it is transformed into a whole meal with added brown rice, toasted seeds and sprouts.

It can be served as a light main or a side dish, or keep a bowl of it in the fridge to snack on during the day. The dressing will keep up to 2 weeks in the fridge.

We love this recipe so much we have featured it in our Morrison Street Cafe Cookbook and Food Diary – it’s November’s feature recipe. Made as per the recipe the salad is wheat, gluten and dairy free and the recipe serves 4.
