Honey, I’m home!????????Back from a month full of family celebrations, moving, and a great vacation with my fabulous girlfriends. I’m so ready to get cooking in my new kitchen…but first, gimme all those greens! Salads are the first thing I crave after being on the road for a while so today I made this simple arugula salad topped with an avocado rose, hemp hearts, sunburst cherry tomatoes, sliced almonds, fresh lemon and garlic tahini dressing. Just another reminder that clean food can be SO good!
Thanks to Trader Joes, my version of tahini dressing is so easy that you may laugh! Here’s my secret…all you need to buy is Trader Joes Tahini sauce and add a little bit of water to it to thin it out. That’s it!! This tahini sauce already comes seasoned with garlic, lemon, salt and all the good stuff so it’s the perfect base for a fabulous dressing. You could also make your own tahini dressing from scratch…but once again…ain’t nobody go time for that! Do you see a pattern forming here? Time is of the essence and these days I don’t have much of it…so tasty shortcuts it is!
In other news, this has been a crazy yet exciting month for me. My brother got married, I moved to a new place, and got to go on a trip with six of my closest girlfriends which hasn’t happened in years! New places, mean new beginnings. I’m excited to create some new memories in my new home!
