This is a fantastic fresh summer breakfast.
I have prepared it with peeled and shredded apples as well but I think the best combo is the peach-grapefruit-banana.
For a kick pour a tablespoon of Udo's oil on top of each portion - in this case I would suggest to skip the coconut / palm oil otherwise it will be too heavy.
This is a slightly altered version of the traditional Hungarian cucumber salad. My grandmother used to make it every Sunday for the whole family and I learnt it from her. Originally it is prepared with vinegar instead of lemon juice and vithout radishes, and served with a dollop of fresh sour cream on top.
I am sure it would taste great with raw sour cream; the fabulous queenfluff has a very tempting recipe here: http://goneraw.com/node/849
I AM NEW TO RAW FOOD AFTER BEING A VEGETARIAN FOR A LITTLE OVER A YEAR, I DECIDED TO MAKE THE SWITCH NOT ONLY BECAUSE IT'S HEALTHIER BUT BECAUSE THE FOOD IS SOOO ATTRACTIVE AND DELICIOUS. THIS IS A RECIPE THAT I CAME UP WITH (I HOPE LOL) IF THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT TO EVEN CALL IT OR YOU CAN CALL IT AN EXPERIMENT OR A CONCOCTION NEVERTHELESS I THINK IT IS REALLY GREAT AND CAN BE MODIFIED TO ONES OWN PERSONAL TASTE. YOU CAN CLASSIFY THIS AS A DESSERT OR A SALAD I BELIEVE, PERSONALLY I WOULD EAT IT AS A DESSERT ANY DAY. SO HERE IT IS PLEASE TRY IT AND TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK AND PLEASE PLAY AROUND WITH IT AND OFFER UP ANY MODIFICATIONS YOU MAY MAKE TO IT SO WE CAN ALL STAY RAW AND ENJOY THE FINEST THINGS NATURE HAS TO OFFER. THANKS
I made this to go with tonight's dinner using a carrot instead of bulgur wheat or quinoa for the starch.
I made the whole thing in my food processor and it took me about 8 minutes including cleaning the machine. Now it's chillin in the fridge and will be ready for dinner or lunch or a snack, in a wrap or on top of a green salad.
I always buy ripe bananas as they are usually cheaper than the unripe green crap.
Sometimes they are so ripe I can only mash them as they would not even slice :) but I love their sweetness.
This "mash" can be used as a dressing on green salad leaves (rocket, watercress etc) or it can be used as a base for a fruit salad.
You will be surprised how little amount of mash will one banana produce - usually I use 5-6 bananas to do this.
