Raw food recipe: Colorful Raw Vegetables

Presentation is everything when you’re entertaining, and this colorful vegetable dish is sure to be a crowd pleaser. The avocado dressing for the spinach is especially tasty. If you’d like to form the center vegetables into a ball, chop them extra finely and add a little olive oil to help them stick.

Juice of 1 lemon
Dash of salt
Dash of olive oil
1 small head of cauliflower
1/2 head of broccoli
