Does it keep? 3 Days



  • ~8 cups mixed greens or roughly chopped kale (I mixed both)
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 3-4 medium radishes (thinly sliced)
  • 1 Tbsp roasted unsalted sunflower seeds
  • 1 medium ripe avocado (thinly sliced)
  • 2-3 Tbsp dried cranberries (or other fruit // optional)


  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 medium lemons, juiced (~1/4 cup or 60 ml as original recipe is written)
  • 1 healthy pinch each sea salt + black pepper


  1. Add the greens to a large serving bowl and top with red onion, radishes, sunflower seeds, avocado, and dried cranberries (optional).
  2. Next, drizzle on tahini and olive oil and squeeze on lemon juice (no need to mix beforehand! The separation makes for more enhanced individual flavors + 1 less dish). Season with salt and pepper, and toss gently before serving.

  3. Best when fresh, though leftovers keep (undressed) up to 3 days in the refrigerator.
