Rawlicious Red Cabbage & Orange Salad with a Raw Thousand Island Dressing

Full of vibrant colour and life, and the most delicious vegan thousand dressing ever, combines to bring a delight full of benefits to your dinner table.  Also great for those on a soya-free diet.


½ red cabbage, cut into thin strips

1 medium sized onion, cut into thin strips

1 orange, peeled & chopped into medium pieces

1 Tbsp sunflower seeds

1 tsp flaxseeds

¼ zucchini, sliced into thin strips


Place the above ingredients in a serving bowl then make your dressing as follows :


1 cup raw cashews, soaked and drained

2 tsp (10 mL) agave nectar

½ a sundried tomato (or 1 full Tbsp of ketchup if you are not making it totally raw)

1 medium sized ripe tomato (remove seeds if you wish)

½ cup (125 mL) water

salt to taste (optional)

2 Tbsp (30 mL) freshly squeezed lemon juice


Place all the ingredients, except for the water, in a liquidizer, and, adding a little water at a time, process until smooth. The consistency should be like that of a thousand island dressing – use your own judgment in terms of how much water to add – you may need a little less, or a little more, depending on your personal preference.

Bon Appétit !

    Now here’s something from garden and grove that’s good for you! I also like the idea of the raw Thousand Island dressing which would probably have a better taste, without being too fatty, eggy, or mayo-like. 🙂
