AVOCADO TAHINI SALAD (KETO, VEGAN)

keto recipe, salad recipe, avocado salad

This is officially my new favorite salad combo! I make it at least 3-4 times a week because it is packed with veggies and healthy fats! I mix everything up quickly in a tupperware before work and it’s perfect for a mid-day snack or side!

The reason I started making this was because I needed something that was low-carb, high-fat and nutrient dense. I needed a way to get more servings of vegetables without having to reheat some mushy leftovers from the night before (which I do a lot too). This salad is just so much more refreshing!

RECIPE
2 cups broccoli slaw*
1/2 avocado
1.5 Tbsp tahini
1 T apple cider vinegar
1/4 lime (juiced)
dash of salt – to taste (I like celery salt!)

Optional additions to make this salad more robust:
Cherry tomatoes
Pinch of ginger
Pinch of turmeric
1 Tbsp cilantro

*I get bored with the plain old mixed greens salad, but if you prefer to use mixed greens go for it! If you do want broccoli slaw, you can either find it pre-made in the veggie section or you can use a food processor to make your own! (I try to be economic with my time, so I buy it from the store)

Mash up avocado in a bowl, leaving it as chunky or as smooth as you prefer. Add in tahini, lime, apple cider vinegar, salt. Add in any other additions at this point. Mix well and add in broccoli slaw. Stir until slaw is well coated.

Enjoy!
