This is probably Phil's favorite "raw" recipe. I love it too but not like he does. He will eat it for days so I always make a lot. Zippy Salad—Lynne Snyder

3-4 diced tomatoes (I used roma)
3 cups frozen corn OR fresh corn, cut off the cob
1 cup chopped celery
1 chopped red bell pepper
1 large cucumber, peeled and chopped OR 1 small jicama, peeled and diced
¼ cup chopped onion or 1 Tbs. dried onion

¼ cup (total) mixture of Olive oil
and Safflower oil
1/3 cup lime juice
8 sundried tomatoes (in oil), chopped
1 garlic clove, pressed
¼ to ½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. cumin
1 tsp. dry basil OR use fresh basil, julienned
¼ tsp Italian seasoning or oregano
¼ tsp. dill weed

Mix salad ingredients together set aside. Mix dressing ingredients together, pour over salad, mix well.


This was adapted from a recipe from Juliano, (THE UNCOOK BOOK). He owns a raw restaurant called "Juliano's Raw" in Santa Monica, California.

NOTE: It makes a LOT, way too much for normal consumption. Cut it in half or even in fourth.
1 red bell pepper, julienned
1 yellow or orange bell pepper, julienned
1 large carrot, julienned
1 large yam or 2 medium, sliced and julienned
1/2 cup quartered walnuts
1/2 cup cashews
2 large apples, peeled, sliced thin and cut in half--I used Fuji
1 cup dried cranberries
1 bunch chopped green onions, including most of the tops
1/2-1 jalapeno, minced--I forgot to do this

1 cup--or to taste--fresh squeezed orange juice
1/4 to 1/2 cup--or to taste--maple syrup--start with lower measurement
1/4 cup--or to taste--fresh squeezed lemon juice
4-6 cloves garlic, pressed
2-3 Tbs. olive oil
2-3 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
2-3 Tbs. Nama Shoyu OR soy sauce
1 tsp-1 Tbs. freshly grated ginger--more if you are crazy about ginger.

Mix the first set of ingredients together. Mix the second set of ingredients together and taste, adjust to suit your taste. Pour over fruit and veggies and mix well.
