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.
