Over the Rainbow Salad with Tahini and Lemon Dressing

Rainbow Salad

There's really no excuse to not get your veg on right now.

If you're looking for a light and healthy spin, combine any raw veggies in this kaleidoscopic feast for a completely balanced meal.  It's a recipe straight out of the pages of my latest book, Eat Clean, Green and Vegetarian.

It’s easy to throw together and deliciously healthy. The tahini and lemon dressing tastes so much better than any pre-packaged dressing you would buy in the grocery store, and it takes a nanosecond to prepare.

Supercharged Tip

For a cheesier dressing, add 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast flakes. If you love soy, this salad can be garnished with cubed fresh, organic tofu, marinated in wheat-free tamari for 5 minutes and fried in a small amount of coconut oil on all sides until crispy.
