Noodles & Greens with Citrus Peanut Tahini Dressing

For the Salad:

  • 1 bunch broccoli, steamed and cooled
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1-2 green onions, chopped
  • mix of lettuce (we used a spring mix and spinach)
  • mix of seeds like sesame, pumpkin, sunflower, hemp, etc.
  • handful of chopped almonds
  • cooked and cooled pasta

We used just a regular fettuccine for this one but try out some others! Buckwheat, spinach or a gluten-free pasta would be great too!

Dressing

  • 2 tsp tahini
  • 2 tsp peanut or almond butter
  • olive oil
  • juice of 1 lime
  • juice of 1/2 large orange (and I added some zest too!)
  • 1 tsp honey (other alternative like agave syrup for vegan)
  • pinch of salt

Toss into a container and shake!!

We put a bed of salad on our plates, topped it with a bit of pasta and the drizzled with dressing… Bon Appétit!
