Shrimp Salad with Tahini Dressing

This salad is full of healthy oils from the avocado, sunflower seeds and the sesame seeds in the Tahini dressing. Sesame seeds are also full of calcium, one of the many minerals needed for strong bones. The sprouts are loaded with enzymes utilized by every part of our body for optimal functioning.

Ingredients:

  • Serves 1
  • 2 cups baby greens
  • 8 -10 small to medium size shrimp
  • 1/3 yellow pepper

Tahini Dressing

  • ½ cup tahini
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1½ – 2 lemons, juiced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 teaspoons tamari (gluten free soy sauce)
  • Pinch of cayenne (optional)
  • ¾ cup water
  • Sea salt and cracked pepper to taste
Place all ingredients and only ½ cup water in a blender or food processor; blend until smooth. Add enough of the remaining water to get desired consistency. Allow mixture to set for a half hour if possible to allow flavors to combine. If you don’t have time for it to sit, it is delicious as is, too! Taste for salt and add more tamari if needed. Dressing will keep in refrigerator for 10 to 14 days.
