Categories: Beets, Salad Dressing, Salads, September2013


  • About 6 cups baby or mesclun greens
  • 1/3 cup grated raw carrots
  • 1/3 cup grated raw beets
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 small red onion, sliced thinly
  • 1/4 cup garbanzo beans
  • 1/4 cup sprouts
  • Portion the lettuce into four separate bowls or plates and artfully arrange in a color palate the remaining ingredients. Serve with lemon tahini dressing on the side. You may want to double the dressing recipe since it is very tasty and good on raw veggie
  • Lemon Tahini Dressing
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup sesame tahini
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2-4 garlic cloves
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons - 1/4 cup water


  1. Blend all ingredients into blender except water, and pulse. Add water to thin to your desired texture. I like to keep it thick if I am using it as a dip for crudités, but thinner if I am making a salad. Season if necessary with salt and pepper. Please enjoy! Serves four.
