Friday, October 1st, 2010

The two great things about this salad are that it tastes great with the interesting blend of citrus and herbs, and it is low in cholesterol. It is totally vegan.

2 green onions, chopped

2 purple onions, chopped

1/4 cup orange juice

1/4 cup fresh mint, or basil

1/4 cup dried cranberries

1/4 cup raisins

1 tbsp olive oil

1/4 tsp salt


Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl. Combine remaining ingredients in a second bowl, then pour into the first bowl. Toss and let sit for 30 minutes before serving.
