This raw salad recipe from "Hallelujah Holiday Recipes…from God's Garden" by Rhonda Malkmus makes quite the treat.


  • 3 celery stalks
  • 2 Red Delicious apples
  • 1 Golden Delicious apple
  • 1 pear
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 orange
  • 1/4 cup dates – chopped
  • 1/2 cup raw pecans – chopped


First, chop the celery finely and place it into a large bowl. Peel and chop apples and pears into bite-size pieces, and then put into a separate bowl. Pour the juice of 1 lemon and 1 orange over the apple and pear to keep them from browning. Stir to coat, let marinate for 10 minutes, and then drain. Set aside.

Chop the pecans and dates into bite-size chunks. Add half of the pecans, dates and celery to fruit mixture.

To make the dressing, blend the reserved pecans and juice in a food processor until smooth and creamy. Add puree to salad and mix to coat.

    For the Napa Almond Slaw, can you recommend a substitute for the red peppers. Nightshades make eczema worse for me.


    • Maybe Tomatoes?

      • Melody Hord March 28, 2017

        Tomatoes would be good but I beleive they are in the night shade family, too. There is nothing that taste like bell pepper. I have been eating a lot of jicama which has a crisp sweet flavor. It would probably be great in this recipe.

          Thanks Melanie re: jicama. And you are right, the tomatoes are a nightshade so they are out too.

    Love the raw apple, pear and pecan salad

    The Sprout slaw sounds delicious!

  4. Connie Gesser March 6, 2018

    I like both of Julie’s recipes. It is amazing how good her recipes make raw cabbage taste without mayonnaise.

    You can make the recipe with headed cabbage if you don’t have nappa cabbage.

    Julie’s recipes are easy, tastes great, and inexpensive to make.
