Strawberry Avocado Salad with Hemp Tahini Dressing Recipe

Strawberry Avocado Salad with Hemp Tahini Dressing Recipe

A deliciously fresh salad with a variety of textures, dressed with a creamy and delightful homemade dressing. Serve it on its own or turn it into a complete meal by adding your protein source of choice.

INGREDIENTS

6 cups mixed baby lettuces

3/4 cup sugar snap peas, thinly sliced 

1/2 large cucumber, spiralized into ribbons

1 cup strawberries, sliced

1/2 ripe avocado, pitted, peeled and diced

1/4 cup Navitas Organics Cashew Nuts

2 Tbsp. fresh mint and parsley

1 Tbsp. fresh basil, minced

Dressing:

1/3 cup tahini

1/4 cup cucumber, sliced

2 Tbsp. Navitas Organics Hemp Seeds

2 Tbsp. lemon juice

2 Tbsp. water (or as needed, to thin)

Black pepper

DIRECTIONS

Make the dressing: Whirl all ingredients in a food processor until completely smooth, then pour them into a jar. Note that the dressing will thicken as it sits, so you may want to shake it up with a bit of water before pouring on the salad.

Combine the salad ingredients. If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can easily create cucumber ribbons by slicing long strips with a veggie peeler. Toss the salad gently with dressing.

Protein options: Roasted or plain chickpeas, beans, grilled tempeh, baked or grilled fish, or organic grilled chicken would all work perfectly!

Makes 2-4 servings
