Just four ingredients and you’ve whipped up a winner.

If you’re familiar with my raw food recipes, you’ll know that I’m a fan of simple, raw recipes that only contain a few ingredients. This raw avocado seaweed salad is no exception. Both the salad and the dressing have only four ingredients, and the flavors in this tangy salad combine beautifully.

Serves: 1 (full meal)

Prep Time: 10 minutes


1 firm but ripe avocado
6 large romaine lettuce leaves
1 tablespoon dry dulse seaweed
1 teaspoon raisins

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup extra virgin cold pressed olive oil
1 teaspoon nama shoyu (or soy sauce)
1 teaspoon honey


Cutting board

Directions (salad)

  1. Chop romaine lettuce. Place on plate.
  2. Cut avocado in half. Spoon into bowl. Chop avocado into bite-sized chunks. Crumble dry dulse seaweed into the bowl. Stir gently until avocado is coated in dulse seaweed.
  3. Place seaweed-coated avocado on top of lettuce. Top with raisins. Set aside so you can make dressing.

Directions (dressing)

  1. In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients: apple cider vinegar, olive oil, nama shoyu, and honey.
  2. Stir dressing with a spoon until well mixed.

Combine Salad and Dressing:
Sprinkle a small amount of the dressing on top of salad – taste. Consume salad immediately.

You will have some dressing left over. Store dressing in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator and enjoy another salad tomorrow. Salad dressing will keep for five days in the refrigerator.

    1 full meal??? I eat more than that! I think I’m no exception.

  2. It’s a reasonably sized salad – similar to what you’d get when ordering a full-sized salad at a restaurant. You can certainly eat more and add a side dish if you like 🙂

    Sounds delicious!!

    I agree with Fanny. This seems much more like a ‘side salad’ than a full meal…unless maybe you eat many (6 or more)small meals a day. But for those of us who eat only 3x a day with no snacking, this would never suffice to ‘hold’ our hunger for the 5 or 6 hours between meals; not to mention providing enough protein & calories for most people’s nutrition needs.
    But then, that’s just how it is for me.
    On the other hand, I love avocados & usually eat at least one throughout my day, so would probably find this recipe to be a delicious addition to my diet.
    Thanks for the recipe!

    Looks great other than the Olive Oil (empty calories), I would substitute that with Dijon mustard.

  6. Thanks Jessica. It is! And simple, too 🙂
