Food writer and River Cottage chef Gill Meller has created a delicious raw vegan salad. Crunchy, tasty, fresh and delicious!


  1. Wash kale, tear off of the stalks and place in a serving bowl. Whisk together the ingredients for the dressing. Pour ¾ of the dressing over the kale and massage in.
  2. Slice mushrooms and remove stalks if tough. Core and slice apples and sprinkle onto kale with mushrooms.
  3. Toss the salad and sprinkle over the sprouted lentils. Spoon the rest of the dressing over the salad and drizzle with olive oil.
  4. Season with salt and pepper and finish with the dill and a final squeeze of lemon juice.
