If I said to you "raw vegie salad"...

... and you were Steve, you'd reply without words. Just a frozen stare as if I were mad.

But if you really do appreciate yummy raw vegetables and want a different way to eat them than your traditional cut veg salad (or steaming, roasting, boiling, etc., them), you might like to try this whip-up. It's one of those basic things you've probably eaten or done before, but if you're anything like me, sometimes if you have something simple to follow in writing, it sort of makes it more novel and easier than having to make it up as you go. Y'know?

This is super easy and I can't eat enough of it.

What you do
Grate: 2 carrots, 1/2 continental cucumber, 1/2 large zucchini (or 1 small, whatever you've got)
Dice: 1 avocado, 1 small red capsicum
Add 1 small handful of fresh baby spinach (chopped) and another handful of broccoli florets.
Combine everything in a bowl, add a dash of Tamari (wheat-free soy sauce), the juice of 1 lime and 1 lemon (recipe says 2 lemons but it's very strong... if you like that sort of thing, use the 2!), a little sprinkle of extra virgin olive oil.
And if you wish, you can add a small tin of fish (tuna, salmon, etc.) and/or a small sprinkle of sesame seeds - toast them first if you have the time.

Must say thanks to my awesome sister in law for this one, it's delish. Mmmmmmmmmmm!!!!
