Salad in a Jar!
Another amazing picnic idea! Also great for work or school lunches. As long as your dressing doesn’t touch the lettuce, these salads will stay fresh in the fridge for 4 or 5 days!
serves 4 persons, for 10x10 cm cake
1/2 cup shredded coconut
Fruit - bananas, kiwis, blueberries or any other fruit you desire.
In a food processor mix dates and shredded coconut together until you get sticky pastry. Take a small bowl or plastic/glass container and lay down one layer of banana slices with covering the sides as well. Take about 2/3 of date-coconut mixture and press on top of that. Now start layering the fruit inside - blueberries, kiwis, bananas or any other fruit. Now cover all of it with remaining 1/3 of date-coconut mixture. Place in the fridge for few hours or overnight. When taking out of the container carefully loosen the edges with a knife and turn the cake upside down on the plate.

Raw Zucchini Sushi Rolls
From For the Love of Food
1/2 cup cashews, soaked overnight
1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
3 - 4 zucchini (each yields 6 - 8 slices)
2 carrots, sliced into matchsticks
1 cucumber, seeds removed and sliced into matchsticks
4 medium radishes, sliced
1 avocado, peeled and sliced
1 small bunch cilantro
Drain cashews and put into food processor with rice vinegar. (Depending on how long cashews were soaked you might need to add a tablespoon of water to get the right consistency.) Process, scraping sides with spatula if necessary, until cashews are a soft paste but still have some texture.
Chop the ends off of your zucchini and use a vegetable peeler to peel your zucchini into long thin strips. Lay zucchini strip flat and add a small spoonful of cashew mixture onto one of the ends of zucchini. Add a few matchsticks of veggies, avocado, and a couple of pieces of cilantro. Roll up and enjoy!
