Vegan and raw chick'n salad cabbage wraps

I'm always experimenting with new ways of preparing food...trying to come up with healthier, quicker, more delicious, and more budget friendly ways of making familiar and unfamiliar dishes.    Recently I stumbled across a blog, Love Veggies and Yoga,  that really inspired me to try all kinds of new recipes and techniques in the kitchen.  Avery is a genius with healthy desserts.  She prepares most all of her food Vegan and raw due to food allergies and sensitivities, and an overall concern about optimal health.  I wanted to share this little creation I came up with recently, inspired by Avery.

to make these I started with raw almonds between 3/4 and 1 cup

Then I ground them using my magic bullet.  You could use a blender, food processor, whatever you have that will finely grind them.

Have you tried this dressing?  It is hands down the best ginger dressing I've ever had outside of a restaurant.

I poured this dressing all over my almond meal.  I used a third to half of a cup.

then I chopped veggies; cabbage, green onions, carrots, and celery

I mixed the veggies and almond meal with the dressing

I pulled a few cabbage leaves off the head

and viola! Vegan and raw chick'n salad cabbage wraps.
These were so delicious and filling!

  3. Ooh.. love ginger dressing! Did I miss the 'raw chicken' in the recipe, or am I misunderstanding something?
