Cranberry Beans and Broccoli Salad with Lemon Tahini Dressing


Ingredients for Salad

½ cup boiled cranberry beans

1 cup organic broccoli florets, blanched

1 small organic tomato, sliced

1 ½ cups organic salad mix

3 tablespoons of lemon tahini dressing

1 tablespoon roasted sesame seeds



Combine broccoli, cranberry beans, tomatoes and salad in a bowl.

Make the lemon tahini dressing and drizzle over broccoli mixture and stir evenly to coat.


Tastes great when served immediately. If you need to refrigerate it for later, you may have to add a bit more of the dressing in case it gets a little dry.
