Jicama Salad with Creamy Tahini and Dill Sauce

Whoa! I never knew I’d love this Creamy Tahini and Dill Sauce so much. It is so very versatile. Last week I served it with roasted potatoes, and now it shines bright in this lettuce-free salad of jicama, corn and zucchini. This Jicama Salad with Creamy Tahini and Dill Sauce is also completely raw and oil-free. I also love it because it’s fast and fresh, and doesn’t require the use of a blender, unlike many other raw sauces.

Kale and Spelt Salad with Peach and Pine Nuts

Kale and Spelt Salad with Peach and Pine Nuts | livitygardens.com
Kale and Spelt Salad with Peach and Pine Nuts | livitygardens.com

This Kale and Spelt Salad with Peach and Pine Nuts really started as a kitchen sink salad, but ended up being something I made three times in a week. So yes, it’s this good. I had kale from the farmers market that I wanted to use as well as some cherry tomatoes. I knew I wanted a grain in there, I love kale salads with grains, so I opted for spelt this time, but feel free to use freekeh, farro, or barley. Any chewy grain will do.

Instructions

Déposer le concombre, les pois mange-tout, l’avocat, et la chair de coconut dans un bol à mélanger.

Placer le reste des ingrédients dans un mélangeur haute vitesse jusqu’à l’obtention d’un mélange onctueux. Verser de la sauce sur la salade et bien mélanger. Garnir de coriandre et de basilic Thaï frais, si disponible.

Notes

Il vous restera de la sauce au beurre d’arachides. Conservez-la au réfrigérateur pour une prochaine salade, pour accompagner des rouleaux printaniers, ou tout simplement pour accompagner des légumes sautés.
