This is a great salad from the Vegetarian Basics cookbook transfered to a vegan, though because of the mustard, not quiiite 100% raw recipe. If anyone knows of mustard substitutes, let me know! I like eating this for lunches or light dinners. I don’t have a picture yet, but I’ll upload one next time I make it!
  • Yield

    Serves 1 (or more, just estimate based on desired servings)
  • Equipment

    None

Recipe Directions

Mix oil, nut milk, mustard, and vinegar together- if you find it too bitter add a dash of agave or live honey.

Assemble salad greens generously on a plate, and spread sprouts over them in the center. It might look something like a bird’s nest. Arrange pear slices in a pinwheel . Sprinkle with chopped nuts and drizzle with dressing. Voila!

Smaller portions with 1/2 a pear can be made for a side salad for entertaining. It is very visually attractive.

Hmm, I will definitely try the ground mustard seeds next time- maybe with some homemade nut milk to make it a creamy mustard, and figure out whatever the large grain spice in dijon mustard is XD

Many co-ops carry ground mustard seeds. If you make mustard right before you use it it will be spicy naturally. Similar to soaking the tannins out of almonds, the longer mustard is in water the milder it gets as it breaks down. It is the opposite of ground wasabi, which requires time to develop it's flavor. Ever had it without greens?

This sounds really yummy and simple. If I substituted with mustard seed, should I also add some cayenne since it's supposed to be spicy mustard?

Or maybe a drizzle of a good balsamic vinegar?

Perhaps an avocado mayo instead of the mustard?

You could always add ground mustard seed instead. There are a couple of mustard recipes on this site.
