high raw salad (from lettuce wraps)

i wanted to make these lettuce wraps again, but i didn't have any large enough pieces of lettuce that would serve as a wrap. so i compromised with a salad, and it was so good i had to share! it's basically the same recipe, except in a bowl. :)

  • 1/2 zucchini
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 2 carrots, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons bragg's aminos
  • 1 ½ teaspoons dulse flakes
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 2-3 roasted red peppers
  • almond cheese
  • shredded lettuce
peel and julienne the veggies, then let marinate in the liquid aminos, dulse and minced garlic.

combine the rest of the ingredients in a bowl and serve as a salad. i didn't make a separate dressing because my red peppers came from an oil-packed jar. that plus the almond cheese made the salad rich and creamy. if you don't use oil-packed peppers, you may want to add a little something for creaminess... depending on taste.

Looks great! Do you keep the avocado in chunks or mash it?
