After cake, eat salad

Sounds fair enough.

After eating an entire plate of chocolate cake, a nice way to balance that out is by eating a healthy salad. Or another bite of cake. Whichever is easiest or more available.

This salad was loaded with fresh romain lettuce, cold quinoa, chick peas, red bell pepper, red onion, crunchy soy nuts, creamy avocado, salt, pepper and a drizzle of Tahini dressing.

Garlic Tahini Dressing

  • 1/4 cup of Tahini
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes
  • water to desired consistency

Blend all ingredients in a blender. Serve over salad or use as a dip for veggies. If dressing becomes too thin, add more Tahini.
