There’s a magical salad in my home and this is it.

I mean, come on. Can you not tell this is magical just by looking at it?

It’s full of vibrant color and it’s ideal for the hottttttt month of August.

If the above pic is calling your name, come on in and let me show you how easy it can be to whip this baby up pronto!

This mega deliciousness is the perfect balance of sweet n’ savory.

Sweet purple cabbage and cherry tomatoes tossed along with almond butter and apples makes up the sweet side and the garlic, tahini, arugula and walnuts make up the savory side. Toss all of that together and you’ve got a salad that takes less than 10 minutes to make.

It’s ideal on those busy evenings when you get home late and don’t feel like cooking or those lazy Sunday afternoons when you’re deciding between eating an entire watermelon or an actual meal.

The best part? This dressing is unlike any other you’ve heard of because it’s a combo of almond butter and tahini whisked together with garlic, lemon juice and water for a sweet n’ savory dressing that’s ideal for dipping raw veggies or served over roasted veggies.

You’re gonna love it.

Enjoy!

I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo

  1. Would like to know the brands of the recipe items you use, as it really does make a difference in taste, ie brand of tahini, almond butter. I find this helpful in all recipes that I want to try . . . . & there are so many !
