Fresh organic ginger
Making my own fresh organic dressings is the only way I consume salad. And since I like salad, I make a lot of fresh dressings. This is a 2.0 version of one I used to make, and it is one of my family’s favorites.
Ginger Shallot Dressing 2.0 (Raw Vegan Paleo Gluten Free)
- 5 tablespoons raw organic olive oil or macadamia nut oil
- 3 tablespoons organic apple cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons water
- 2 tablespoons raw honey
- 1 tablespoon plus 1⁄2 teaspoon coconut aminos
- 1 tablespoon minced shallot (or 1 teaspoon onion powder)
- 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger (or 1 teaspoon ground ginger)
Blend everything up and dress your salad.

Rudolph Cherry Cobbler (Gluten Free. Paleo. Raw Vegan.)
I asked my husband, who has a birthday around the holidays, what he wanted to eat for his birthday dessert. He said without thinking twice, Rudolph Cherry Cobbler. It’s a raw vegan, paleo, and gluten free recipe from my Holidays Recipe Book that he’s been a raving fan of for the past five or so years. I said to him, “Really? That’s what you want for your birthday?” He said, “YES! It’s the best and I can’t eat just one serving, I keep going back for more.” I can’t say I blame him… it is friggin’ delish. The squishy and delicious cherries explode with flavor in your mouth.

I think the way for raw vegans and paleo peeps to eat together of the same meals is to keep it to mostly desserts and salads. Those can easily be made both raw vegan and paleo. Enter: 60-Second Raw Ranch Dressing. This is a great ranch dressing that takes just minutes to make.
Note: Once this dressing is refrigerated, it thickens. At this point, it is still thin enough to use on a salad, but you can always water it down if you like. You can also use the thickened version as a luscious, flavorful dip for veggies.
60-Second Raw Ranch Dressing (Raw Vegan Paleo Gluten Free Soy Free)
Yields 1 1/2 cups
In a blender, combine the water, cashew butter, dill, lemon juice, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Blend until smooth. Done! Super yum.

Vibrant and satisfying salad ready to be tossed.
Here’s another delicious recipe to be shared by raw vegans and paleo peeps alike… a salad :)
This Simply Vinaigrette dressing is a staple recipe in our house, because I always have fresh lemons and raw olive oil on hand (high quality raw organic olive oil, of course). It’s perfect for gently cooked vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, or bok choy. Today, I’m showing it off here as a fresh, healthy, and easy salad dressing.

I’ve always had a thing for cooked tomatoes. Raw tomatoes? Not so much… but cooked tomatoes I enjoy. The thing is that I usually serve them (cooked) in some sort of sauce where they share center stage with a protein and / or other vegetables.

Oftentimes my lunch consists of either a big salad or some kind of blended drink / smoothie. I usually load it up with fat and veggies so it’s highly nutritious (fat helps many nutrients get absorbed from foods) and satiating, not to mention easy and fast.
Cucumber Ice Smoothie
Cucumber Ice Smoothie (Vegan. Paleo.)
Yield 2 servings
- 1 large organic cucumber, chopped
- handful of fresh cilantro
- 1 tablespoon fresh dill
- 2 stalks celery, chopped
- 1 avocado, pitted and peeled
- 1 tablespoon MCT oil
- pinch fleur de sel salt
- juice 1/2 lemon
- 1 cup ice
Blend everything until smooth. I used my Vitamix and the accompanying plunger. If you don’t have one of these beauties, then you might need to add a bit of water to help get it blended.

Here’s another recipe that we can all enjoy whether we’re raw, vegan, or paleo, and it’s perfect during the summer because of strawberries being in season.
This recipe’s gorgeous pink color, creamy texture, and bright flavor take fruit to the next level. Serve this salad for breakfast, as a side to lunch, or as your next dessert. And, although I often make it with apples and bananas, you’ll love the cream with any fresh fruit, especially if it’s in season.

The other day I was hungry for lunch but my house was pretty empty of food. Gasp! I have no idea how that happened. So, I looked in the refrigerator and saw cucumber, pastured eggs, and a few other things. So, it was time to get somewhat creative and it worked out well. I gently scrambled the eggs in organic grass fed ghee, and made the following side dish salad.
Cucumber Mustard Salad
I’m so pleased with it that I plan on making it for a quickie appetizer salad for future dinners.
