All I want for lunch in this heatwave is a cold, crisp salad. I love to switch up my lettuces, toppings, and dressings. This one has kale, purple cabbage, avocado, tomato and lentils and is topped with a tahini lemon dressing. Tahini (made from sesame seeds) is a good source of protein, fiber, healthy fats, and B vitamins. This meal is high in fiber, healthy fats, protein and all the antioxidants. It will keep you full and satisfied all afternoon long! Let me know what you think. Link in bio to buy one of my favorite tahinis.
