Raw Pineapple-Macadamia Salad

This beautiful salad was my lunch today.  The recipe idea came from Dr. Douglas Graham and his 80/10/10 Diet Book. Dr. Douglas Graham, a lifetime athlete and raw fooder since 1978, is an advisor to world-class athletes and trainers from around the globe. I love how he likes to take some of the salad ingredients, blend them up and then use them as a dressing.  What a fantastic idea and so easy!!
