Farmer's Market Bounty - Raw Wrap

I went to the Briarcliff Farmer's Market yesterday. So exciting :) I picked up these big, beautiful collard leaves, glowing red beets, asparagus, radishes, a couple of expensive tomatoes, and yellow cauliflower all for 11 bucks. FUD, the little kc vegan place I love, makes a beautiful raw wrap kinda like this. The owner says eating something like this at least once a week is really great for the system. How could you not feel great after eating every color of the rainbow? I tore off the radish and beet tops and topped it with an avocado. The sauces at FUD are far more amazing than the simple balsamic vinaigrette (is olive oil considered raw?) She also has a few more exotic ingredients, like say, goji berries instead of my humble dried cherries. Anyway, it was delish. I plan to do this far more often during the summer. Did I mention how much I love beets. A-mazing.
