Nutty Salad

This is a beautifully colorful and crunchy salad.  It takes a little time to chop all the veggies but the result is well worth the effort. Double the recipe if you plan to bring this to a potluck lunch or picnic. There never seems to be enough!  Yum!

Screw Top Jar (to mix the dressing)
Chopping Board
Large Bowl



3 cups raw potatoes, peeled and diced fine
2 ears fresh corn kernels
1 1/2 cups green peas
1 cup carrots, diced or shredded
1 medium onion, chopped
1 small green pepper, chopped
5 radishes, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
1/2 cucumber, chopped
1/4 cup nuts of your choice, chopped
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup coconut, grated
2 Tbsp fresh parsley or cilantro, chopped
Sea salt to taste


2 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
5 1/4 Tbsp olive oil
1 1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp brown sugar or Sucanat(dehydrated cane juice)


  1. Mix the dressing ingredients in a screw top jar and shake well.  Pour the dressing into a large bowl.
  2. Dice potatoes and toss well with the dressing. (This will keep the raw potatoes from turning brown.)
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and toss well.
