Bitter Greens & Seeds Salad - Boketto Wellness
This is a salad that we keep coming back to for its simplicity, flavor, crunch and nutritional benefits, especially in light of the early summer heat wave and the desire for light, clean, hydrating foods.
For the salad:
1 large handful fresh, organic bitter greens
Handful of pumpkin + flax seed blend or sunflower + sesame seed blend (*refer to the seed cycling guide above)
Seaweed flakes, such as dulse or nori; we also favor adding kelp noodles to enhance salads
Dark Horse mustard seeds
For the dressing:
1 tbsp tahini
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1-2 tsp turmeric powder (Anima Mundi Herbals)
Pinch of sea salt, to taste
Layer the salad components in a large bowl and add any additional sources of crunch, flavor and taste as desired. To make the dressing, combine tahini, olive oil and turmeric in a small bowl and stir well with a spoon. Add additional tahini and/or olive oil as necessary until desired consistency is achieved and then flavor to taste with a pinch of sea salt. Dress the salad generously and then toss to coat the bitter greens.
