Rainbow Raw Vegetable Platter

This is a quick no-recipe dish. I believe that everyone can enjoy raw food daily without spending a lot of time on meal preparation. Delicious raw salads can be made in minutes; and for a more festive table, an attractive platter can be created in no time with very simple, colorful ingredients. Emphasis on the "colorful," of course. 


When designing a raw food platter, pick as many colorful vegetables as possible. Remember to always buy the freshest organic ingredients. 

To create this attractive raw vegetable platter that you see on the photo I used
  • cucumber
  • sweet pepper
  • avocado
  • radishes
  • tomatoes
  • green onions
  • purple onions
  • carrots
  • kohlrabi
  • purple micro-greens
  • hemp seeds
  • physalis berries

You may want add lettuce or kale leaves, beets, strawberries, nuts, seeds, or sprouts. Be creative. Whatever you decide to use, make sure that you are using colorful ingredients. This is not for the aesthetics only. By eating the whole rainbow spectrum of fruits and vegetables you are providing the body with a wider range of phytonutrients.

You can serve this platter as an appetizer or a side dish. Cut, slice, chop, grate, or spiralize the ingredients. Arrange them on the platter and serve with a simple salad dressing or a dip. Enjoy in good company!
