  • Micro Salad with Tahini Dressing

    Ingredients:

    • Salad
    • Baby kale
    • Micro greens
    • Shredded carrot
    • Radishes thinly sliced

    Tahini Dressing:

    • 1/4 cup lemon juice
    • 1-cup tahini
    • 1 1/4 cups water
    • 3/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne

    To make the dressing, blend all the above ingredients together. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed. When adding the water, begin with just one cup and then add one tablespoon at a time until the dressing is thinned out to your liking. This makes around 2 1/2 cups of dressing. Store in a tightly sealed glass jar in the refrigerator for up to one week. Use it on everything.

    For the salad, take a handful of each of the ingredients and toss in a bowl with a drizzle of tahini dressing. I tend to make this salad HUGE. Toss some sunflower seeds or pepitas on top for some added crunch (and nutrient boost) or some crisped tempeh to take the protein level up a notch.
