Yam Salad

I’m obsessed with salads, but as the seasons change, so do my ingredient choices.  Even while living a raw food lifestyle, I love to eat seasonally.  Apples, cranberries, yams and parsnips have been make quite an appearance in my autumn kitchen.  I first tossed up this salad when I found yams in my veggie co-op bag, adding a few simple ingredients that I had on hand.  I was so impressed by the flavor combination that I found myself repeatedly making it.  The sweet yams tossed with crunchy cabbage, nutty hemp oil and delicate poppy seeds make a deliciously tasty and gorgeously colored autumn side dish.
