In this hilarious, informative, and entertaining raw food recipe demo, celebrity raw vegan chef and TV host Jason Wrobel, aka J-Wro, shows you how to prepare an amazing recipe for a, light, crunchy salad that is full of flavor and nutrition. The fresh avocado lime dressing kicks the flavor up several notches, combining citrus, jalapeno, and avocado for a creamy, tangy, spicy zest in every bite.

Jason combines romaine lettuce, tomatoes, endive, cucumbers, carrot, red bell pepper, green onions, baby spinach, olives, and microgreens or sprouts, but you can use almost any combination of fresh organic produce you can find. Add extra crunch with hemp seeds, nuts, or sunflower seeds. Top it off with an amazingly savory dressing. Voila!

  • Im about three years late, but I just prepared this minus the olive oil, using a huge avocado, and way more lime juice. What a stunning recipe! Thank you!

  • Can I use coconut oil instead of the olive oil

  • I was really excited to try this, but I was left disappointed. It came out like olive oil-flavored mousse. Did I do something wrong? I didn't omit any ingredients. I even went back in and juiced the rest of the lime and added a clove of garlic and more cilantro, but it didn't alter the taste at all. It was just very heavy — not what I expected from a recipe with so much citrus. Any ideas on tweaking it to lighten the flavor and texture?

    • If you blend avocado too long it becomes moussey. Try throwing the avocado in at the very end and only blending for 10 seconds or so. And also like Charlie said, leaving out some of the oil. Avocado adds enough fat to the recipe for my taste.

      You can make it a little lighter, thinner, and more flavorful, Lindsay, by using less olive oil and adding a dash or three of plain, unsweetened coconut, rice, or almond milk. I also like a bit of cumin and Italian herbs in mine. Sometimes I add a little red bell pepper to the blender too. Hope that helps. Good luck.

  • I love Jason's kitchen. Mine is about the same size and it's given me ideas.

  • I am enjoying seeing some of your recipes as they come up on the sides of Facebook, but I cannot find a way to print them. I have copied some out by hand, but it would be very useful if I could print them. I have not yet make any of the recipes, but will certainly do so in the future.

  • Thank you so much! I wanted a raw vegan salad dressing and I didn't know what to use. This is delicious!

  • Hello! Because the dressing has avocado in, I'm wondering, will it keep overnight? Thanks!

  • the economy of heaven...God made iceberg to detox you and did it in wonderful crunchy delicious's my favorite lettuce and will detox in a powerful way....even rotten green meat poisoning yuck! so it will do great for raw vegans...enjoy it iiiit's wonderful!

  • this is good...let me know when you get salad dressing recipes that can be soup...i have been looking toooooooooooooooooo

  • Actually iceberg lettuce has its place in our body as a high fiber and water food which aids in detoxing the kidneys and colon!

  • I am stymied by reading "iceberg lettuce" in the ingredient list. I do not wish to be contentious, but I was under the impression that the nutritional value of iceberg lettuce was near nil, and this is discouraging to see. Any insight? Thank so much!

      Hi Velvet, Jason chose iceberg lettuce for this recipe for the "crunch" factor. It's true that there isn't much nutrition in it, but it won't hurt to eat it occasionally either. You can always substitute it with the vegetable of your choice. :)

  • One of my favorite salad dressings is 4 Tbsp Flax oil, 4 Tbsp Hemp oil, 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard, 2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar, 4 Tbsp Agave Nectar, with seasonings to taste. Everybody that has had my dressing asks for the recipe. It's actually not my own, but from Forks Over Knives cookbook.

    I'm going to try this recipe because it sounds delicious!

    • In reply to Cheryl's comment

      Holy crap! Agave Nectar is horribly bad for you! Research!

    • In reply to Pam's comment

      Pam, that's a bit dramatic. While you want to use agave in moderation due to fructose content (just like sugar) it's not going to hurt having it on occasion in a dressing or dessert. "Horribly bad for you" is a bit excessive and condescending to a kind person simply sharing a recipe.

      Cheryl, this dressing sounds fabulous!
