Chopped Asian Zucchini Salad Recipe with raw zucchini, red cabbage, carrots, edamame and homemade healthy Asian Sesame salad dressing. | ifoodreal.com

A result of weekly trips to local farmers market is raw zucchini salad recipe and kale tacos. I had all these veggies on hand I had no idea what to do with. I have to say I love raw zucchini (“hi” ! Combined with edamame beans for extra protein, red cabbage with all its cancer fighting properties, carrots, radishes (my kids weirdly love radishes) and cucumber; poured my homemade Asian salad dressing on top (based on fresh orange juice like my orange ginger dressing) and we had light summer dinner that involves A LOT of chewing. Clearly kids had something else as well because I do not have magic kids. I don’t remember what though, I bet pasta. Last week I was gone for 6 days, and so was gone 10 lbs of pasta when I got back.

I have to warn you this salad is HUGE. I divided it in half – one half we ate over 2 days, and the other half we ate like 3 days later (add dressing before serving). So, this would be great for any summer party, serves a big crowd with lots of fresh veggies. And how convenient to make the salad and dressing ahead for up to 3 days.

I have been going to my local farmers market every Saturday religiously this year. I have no idea where I have been during the past 7 years missing out on all this organic produce. I asked all farmers questions on how they grow their produce and now have my favourite booths to visit. All veggies and fruit I buy are either certified organic or not sprayed/fertilized with any synthetic products.

We had very early spring in Vancouver, so all produce is way ahead of schedule. Past Saturday I even found these no spray cherries. They cost $10 for this container you see but were delicious. And sprayed only with 2 naturally derived things which I forgot what they were. But sounded pretty legit to me.

What do you think of recycling old runners this way? Interesting concept but looks kinda unappealing to me.
