Health Highlights


2 1/2 cup, shredded Napa cabbage, raw
1 cup Wild rice, dry
1/4 cup grated Carrots
1/4 cup Seaweed, arame, dried, Eden
4 tbsp Green onion (finely chopped)
3 tbsp hulled Sunflower seeds (soaked)
3 tbsp Pumpkin seeds (pepitas) (soaked)
2 tbsp Olive Oil, Extra Virgin
1 tsp Himalayan sea salt (or Celtic salt)
1 avocado(s) Avocado (seed removed)
1/2 cup Water, filtered
1 tbsp Tahini
1 tbsp minced Ginger root
1 clove(s) Garlic (peeled and pressed, optional)
1 tbsp Apple cider vinegar


Start the rice three days in advance. Begin by soaking 1/2 cup wild rice in a one quart mason jar, filled with pure water, for 12 hours. Rinse and refill jar with fresh water. Soak for another 12 hours. Drain. Rinse and drain twice daily for 2-3 more days. It will be chewable, but not soft. Put into bowl.

Soak pumpkin and sunflower seeds overnight in pure water, or, for 4-6 hours before using. Rinse and drain. Put into bowl.

Soak seaweed in pure water for 15 minutes. Drain, and put into bowl. Scrub carrot, and rinse. Grate carrot and cabbage, adding to bowl. Chop green onions and cabbage in a food processor. Add to bowl. Add 2 tbsp oil and 1/2 tsp salt to the bowl.

In a food processor, combine avocado, water, tahini, ginger, garlic and 1/2 tsp salt. Mix well with salad and serve.

Tip: Garnish the salad with sliced asparagus for some extra crunch!

Note: If you aren't going to make the dressing, be sure to put the super-finely grated ginger root and tahini in the salad to balance the flavors. Makes great leftovers stored up to 1-2 days in fridge.
