Arugula and Broccoli Slaw Salad with Tahini Dressing


Arugula and Broccoli Slaw Salad with Tahini Dressing

This is a quick salad you can toss together and add as a side to any meal.  Using pre-packaged greens and slaw makes it so easy and convenient.  The dressing can be made in a food processor or blender but as you can see from the pictures, I did’t even bother getting my Ninja out.  I simply added all the ingredients to a jar and whisked it up!  Then I just store the extra dressing right in the jar in the refrigerator.  Dressing will thicken as it sits in the refrigerator, so simply add a little water to thin.

Prep time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups arugula
  • bag of broccoli slaw (or desired amount)
  • 1 cup packaged shredded carrots
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • water for thinning

Directions

  1. Make dressing first by combining all ingredients in a food processor or jar.  Slowly add water until dressing is desired consistency.  It should be relatively thick but still pourable.
  2. Combine the arugula, slaw and carrots in a large bowl.
  3. Pour the dressing over salad in small amounts and toss gently.  Add more if needed.  It’s always better to have to add more rather than having a soggy salad with too much dressing.
  4. If desired, you can squeeze some fresh lemon juice over the top and add slices of avocado for a nice finishing touch!
