It’s too hot to cook for most of us, but it’s not too hot to chop a few veggies, whip up a little homemade salad dressing, and enjoy a nutrient dense and delicious salad! Feel free to substitute your fave veggies into this recipe. It’s very flexible, which is one of my favorite things about it!  

Summer Days Entree Salad
Serves 2

1/2bu kale, chopped and massaged
1/2 head green cabbage, chopped
1/2c cilantro, chopped
1/2 small red onion, diced
1/2 red pepper, sliced thinly
Handful of sunflower sprouts (pea shoots would also work well here!)
3 small carrots, sliced on the bias
1 beet, peeled and sliced very thinly
8-10 cherry tomatoes, halved
1/3c almonds, dry toasted in cast iron skillet until fragrant
1 avocado, diced

Combine ingredients in a large salad bowl and serve with Tumeric Tahini Dressing.

Turmeric Tahini Dressing
Makes 20 – 24oz and lasts in the fridge for 3-4 weeks
Lasts longer if you remove the avocado
