Regardless of what type of diet you enjoy throughout the year, one thing is for certain, every Thanksgiving table needs at least one great salad. No, we're not talking about some lettuce, carrots, and cucumbers chopped up and thrown in a bowl. We're talking a vibrant, luscious bowl of greens and superfoods bursting with nutrition and life force. Not only will it add a splash of much-needed color to your Thanksgiving spread, but your belly will also say, well, THANK YOU for all of those vitamins, minerals, healthy fats and enzymes.
This salad delivers all of the above plus it's a solid 10 in the flavor department. It has crunchiness and chewiness and just the right amount of sweet to balance out those dark greens. Complete with a creamy and delicious tahini macadamia nut dressing made with Dastony nut butters which are freshly stone ground in small batches. This recipe is fuss-free and easy to throw together!
Don't forget to nourish all parts of yourself this Thanksgiving and beyond – body, mind, and spirit.
