Lately I have been too lazy to cook in this heat and often make different versions of this yummy green salad for lunch or dinner. Sometimes it’s topped with a piece of fish, or tofu – it’s a great light option to go with protein or carbs, or by itself!
Tahini is one of my favourite things to use in dressings; it’s ground up sesame seeds and gives a creamy taste and look. You can use this dressing recipe as a quick go to for most dishes, sometimes I add peanut butter and more tamari for a satay quinoa dish, or more water or lemon for salads – you can really play with the quantities and consistency!
How To Make The Perfect Green Salad
Hope you love it – I always alternate my greens but find the below is a great combo!
Summer Greens Salad Ingredients:
- Kale or spinach
- Edamame beans
- Grilled courgette
- 2tbsp olive oil
- 3tsp tahini
- 3tsp tamari
- Juice of one lemon
- A little water, if needed
Whisk the dressing ingredients all together in a big bowl then throw in the green veg. Rub the dressing into the greens with your hands to coat evenly then add the avocado at the end. Sprinkle some seeds or even feta if you like!
