We love salads that are not only eye appealing, but taste great. Well today’s salad is just that and has an added bonus, its healthy! The dressing for today’s salad calls for Tahini, which is a paste made from sesame seeds that can be found in Turksish, Greek, and Middle Eastern cuisines. We love this recipe because it’s loaded with raw nutrients from the spouts, parsley and butter lettuce. The recipe also has some honey, giving it a nice sweet hint. This salad will make 2-4 servings and here’s what you’ll need to make the salad:

  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 3 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. honey or agave
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • big pinch of parsley or chives
  • 2/3 cup water
  • salt and fresh ground pepper
  • 1 large head of Living Butter Lettuce, cleaned and dried
  • 1 avocado, pitted, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 persian cucumber, halved and thinly sliced or shaved
  • 1 carrot, grated or shaved
  • 1 cup sprouted (broccoli, pea, sunflower, radish etc)
  • sunflower seeds, optional
