Ingredients

Salad

  • 4-5 cups chopped broccoli crowns
  • 2 cups shredded brussels sprouts
  • 3 clementines segmented

Dressing

  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 3 tablespoons tahini or to taste
  • 2 tablespoons tamari
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • water if needed, to thin

Instructions

  • Steam the chopped broccoli for about 5 to 6 minutes, until slightly tender, but still crunchy.
  • Place the steamed broccoli, shredded brussels sprouts, and clementine segments into a large bowl and mix to combine.
  • Whisk all of the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl. Add a bit more tahini if you want a creamier dressing. Alternately, add a drizzle of water to thin it out, if you prefer.
  • Pour the dressing over the salad, as much or as little as you want, and mix well.

Notes

~ Steam the broccoli until just tender, but still has some crunch. If you cook it until soft, it won't stand up to the dressing as well.
~ Buy shredded or shaved brussels sprouts from the produce section to save yourself the time of prepping them yourself at home.
~ Be sure to stir the tahini well before measuring and adding to the recipe. The natural oils will separate in the jar and needs to be stirred back in.
~ Look for gluten-free tamari to keep this recipe gluten free.
~ Use water instead of oil for the dressing to keep this recipe oil free.
~ Use as much or as little of the dressing as you like.

Storage/Freezing
This salad will keep in an air-tight container in the fridge for 4 to 5 days.
I do not recommend freezing this recipe.
