Rainbow Roots Slaw with Tahini Parsley Dressing
This colorful salad brightens up any meal and it’s like a detox in a bowl. Antioxidants and liver-supporting nutrients never tasted so good!

Ingredients

Tahini Parsley Dressing

1 small clove garlic, minced

1/4 cup minced fresh flat-leaf (Italian) parsley

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 cup tahini

2 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons filtered water (approx.)

Rainbow Roots Slaw

2 cups shredded green cabbage

2 large carrots, grated

1 firm pear (such as Bosc), grated

2 medium red beets, peeled and grated (*see Tip)

Directions
Yield: 4 servings

1. Dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together garlic, parsley, cumin, salt, tahini, lime juice, and oil. Whisk in 1 tablespoon water. If the dressing is too thick, add the remaining water (or more, as needed).

2. Slaw: In a large bowl, toss together cabbage, carrots, and pear. Add dressing and toss until vegetables are well coated. Add beets and toss to coat.

*Tip: Yes, the beets are eaten raw in this recipe. Beets stain everything, so you may want to wear rubber gloves when you peel and grate them.

The beets are added last so they don’t turn the whole salad red.
