We’re big on salads here, but I have to admit, I wasn’t always a salad lover. It wasn’t until I expanded my tastes and realized that salads were more than mere lettuce and carrots that I began to love them. This is one of the kind of salads that could make a believer out of anyone. This salad might be hard to put together off season, so make sure you know you’re getting your produce from a reliable source.
Note, If you can’t find decent whole tomatoes, use grape tomatoes in the off months. They tend to be easier to grow in a wider variety of places, so more grocers have access to them year-round. Besides, they’re tasty by themselves!
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons white or yellow organic miso paste
1 tablespoon brown rice syrup or maple syrup
1-2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon tahini
3 cups mixed pea and sunflower sprouts
1 medium bunch of pink radishes, sliced thin
1/2 diced tomato
1 avocado, halved and thinly sliced
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 sunflower seeds
This salad works great with dinner for two or as an entire meal in and of itself. We’ve also included it in our detox plan, because of its awesome health benefits. Let us know what you think of it below!
