Memorial Day Weekend, the national symbol for summer, is a perfect time to get back into healthy eating after the long COVID winter, or keep up the good work as we shed pj’s and lounge pants for tank tops and bathing suits.
This salad is a colorful, flavorful healthy option, perfect for lunch or dinner, hosting friends or bringing a dish to a BBQ.
First chop up some of each of these ingredients based on the size of your crowd. (I was making it up as I went but this was for 6 people...)
1 c broccoli
3-4 celery stalks
2 heads of romaine
3 scallions, white and green parts
1 plum tomato
For the dressing I combined the following in ABOUT these amounts:
Juice from 1.5 lemons
1/2 c tahini
1/2 c maple syrup
1 TBSP dried chives
1.5 TBSP dried cilantro
1/2 c water plus a little more to be sure it’s liquified enough to make a silky dressing.
