Perfect Everyday Salad

saladI pretty much eat some variation of this salad every single day for lunch. Can’t help it, it’s delicious and easy, and ends up being really inexpensive as a daily meal. This photo shows the salad made with arugula, but my new favorite is the Power Greens blend from Trader Joe’s (it has baby kale, baby spinach, and baby chard.) Other great additions that I like to throw in are quinoa, hemp seeds, or sprouted lentils. The salad itself is made with 1/2 of a diced avocado, about 6 baby heirloom tomatoes, 1/4 of a cucumber,  julienned, 1/2 a cup of micro-greens, 1 sprig of sliced green onions, 1/4 of a red bell pepper, sliced, and a Sweet Grapefruit Tahini Dressing.

Sweet Grapefruit Tahini Dressing

(Makes enough to last you a few days)

1/2 cup tahini

juice of 1 grapefruit

2 tbs agave nectar (or use half orange juice, half grapefruit for sweetness)

stir this all together and pour over your salad. Keeps well in the fridge for up to a week. This also tastes pretty amazing with lemon juice or tangerine juice instead of lemon.
