Raw Yam Salad with Sweet Corn & Black Beans

Besides making juice and smoothies to eat my partially raw food diet, I make lots of raw salads. These are not your lettuce salads. I'm talking raw cut-up vegetables that most people would not think of eating raw. But why not raw?

This salad is inspired by one I had with cooked yams. But yams are so yummy raw and they provide a crunch, which I love. So here you go—add another raw veggie salad to your salad recipe file.

What do you eat raw that you used to eat cooked all the time?
