One of the freshest and tastiest ways to promote good health is to enjoy fresh organic raw foods as often as possible. Now is the amazing time of the year to enjoy the harvest of so many fruits and vegetables. The Farmers’ Markets and the CSA (Community Sustainable Agriculture) farming are brimming over with the fall bounty.
Everything (except the grapes) you see in this raw dish came from my CSA. This dish is delicious, and simple. Oh, and beautiful to look at and serve to others.
It is a great example of part of the Mediterranean diet. I am sure you have heard of the Mediterranean diet, which is often referred to as the world’s healthiest diet. There have been many studies supporting this diet and all it’s advantages ~ from protection against cancer, diabetes, to increased mental agility to longevity. Besides it being good for you it is also light and delicious.
