Does it keep? 1-2 Days



  • 1/2 cup broccoli (finely chopped)
  • 1 medium beet (cut in matchsticks // I used this mandolin)
  • 1 1/2 cup carrots (cut into matchsticks)
  • 1/2 cup radish (cut into matchsticks)
  • 1 large sweet apple (cut into matchsticks)
  • 1/3 red onion (thinly sliced)
  • 1/3 cup roasted unsalted sunflower seeds (raw and/or salted also works)


  • 2 1/2 Tbsp tahini
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 large lemon (juiced)
  • 1 - 2 Tbsp maple syrup (or other sweetener of choice)
  • 1 pinch each sea salt + black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive or avocado oil
  • Water (to thin)


  1. Prepare all veggies and add to a bowl. I used this mandolin and it went so fast! Otherwise, a sharp knife and some patience, or a food processor with a grating attachment would work brilliantly.
  2. Whisk dressing ingredients in a small mixing bowl and taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
  3. Add dressing to veggies, along with sunflower seeds, and toss to coat. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving, preferably 2-3 hours or up to overnight.
  4. Store in the fridge covered for a few days, though best within the first 24-48 hours.
