Holiday Salad Arrangement w/ Creamy Tahini Dressing


Thanksgiving is tomorrow and everyone has called all the dishes- mom is making the turkey, aunties bringing the sweet potatoes and green beans, dad picks up the egg rolls ๐Ÿ˜‚, brother brings the pie and cousins supply the stuffing, rolls and wine. So whatโ€™s left?

Iโ€™m a big proponent for giving salads a good name. The days of basic iceberg lettuce, shredded carrots and a cherry tomatoes is over if Iโ€™m invited.

This year I dolled up ordinary organic mixed greens with

  • Shredded red beets
  • Sliced golden beets
  • Sliced watermelon radish
  • Sliced persimmon
  • Coarsely chopped radicchio
  • Shredded purple cabbage
  • Dried mulberries
  • Chopped curly parsley
  • Pomegranate seeds
  • Toasted sesame seeds
  • and creamy tahini dressing ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿปย
