I love to promote eating raw! The argument around the healing effects of raw food continues. As it is, some people think raw food is inedible even though they have never given it a chance. When I do cooking demos at the local farmer’s market, I make as much raw food as I can to show just how good the food is. Once a person tastes it and I tell them the health benefits, they are hooked.
There are just as many recipes for raw food as there are for cooked for. A little somethin' that I love to make is a yummy raw corn salsa. It gets rave reviews and everyone always wants the recipe.
6-8 medium ears of corn, decobbed
4 medium tomatoes, finely diced
1 red or yellow bell pepper, finely diced
1/2 tsp. cayenne
1 tsp. Celtic sea salt
Fresh ground black pepper to taste
1 clove garlic, pressed
1/4 cup chives, finely chopped
1 tlb. olive oil
2 tsp. lemon juice
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, de-stemmed and finely chopped
Mix well, then remove 1 cup of salsa and blend in blender.
Fold this mixture back into salsa.
