Mimi Kirk's Simple Mediterranean Salad ~ Raw Food Recipe

 serves 2 ~ $3.82 per serving
4 firm heirloom tomatoes or slightly green tomatoes, cut into wedges ($3.00)
2 sweet red or yellow peppers, seeded, cored, and sliced into thin strips ($2.10)
1small or 1/2 medium sweet onion or red onion, sliced into strips ($.10)
1/2 cucumber, coarsely diced ($.25)
1 cup raw olives, pitted ($1.59)
good quality extra-virgin olive oil ($.30)
1-2 tablespoons lemon juice ($.30)
himalayan or celtic sea salt, to taste
freshly milled pepper to taste
This recipe is from Mimi Kirk's wonderful book, Live Raw. This is one of the best raw food books I've read. Mimi's recipes are elegant and gourmet, but they're also very simple and easy to make.
To make the Simple Mediterranean Salad ... place the vegetables in a bowl and sprinkle generously with extra-virgin olive oil, lemon, salt, and pepper. Let salad rest for 15-20 minutes to meld flavors together.
Taste for salt and pepper and adjust if necessary. Flavors should be lemony and light. 
Serve on chilled lettuce leaves.

  1. I'm glad I stumbled across your blog - one of the most common objections to going raw that I've heard is the cost, and while I haven't tried to contradict anyone (I see my grocery bill), I usually just tell them it's worth it to feel this good!
    Can't wait to check out all of your cost-saving meals!
