Instead of a genie in a bottle, I give you salad in a jar. OK. That was cheesy, but I think it made you at least chuckle or roll your eyes. LOL! I was up late last night because the heating pipes in my apartment were as loud as fireworks on the fourth of July. I guess it’s part of the charm of these old NYC apartment buildings. However, my survivalist side who needs 8 hours of sleep wasn’t thinking about charm! LOL
Then there are salads. Bright crispy textured concoctions of yummy fruits and vegetables. Topped with a delicious dressing. This particular dressing is a new invention using tahini, a sesame paste. Tahini adds a nutty flavor as well as adding a punch of potein. If you love humus, you’ll love this dressing. Tahini is typically one of the main ingredients in humus.
PLUS this is a no cut and chop dressing. Just measure and toss everything into a food processor and blend!
The proteins, fiber, vitamins and minerals in this salad will help boost energy and alertness. Also remember, rule of thumb when eating vegetables with the most nutrients is to choose fruits and veggies that are colorful, in season and fresh.Print
