Cabbage and Chard Slaw with Orange Tahini Dressing

This is a great recipe I had at Nourish Sequim here in Sequim WA a few years ago and thought I would share it with you.  We are blessed to have fresh organic produce locally and it just makes this salad even better!!

Cabbage and Chard Slaw with Orange Tahini Dressing 2


zest of 1 orange
2 tablespoons olive oil (preferably extra-virgin)
½ teaspoon coarse salt
¼ cup fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons water
3 tablespoons tahini
½ small head cabbage, thinly sliced (about 3 cups)
1 cup thinly sliced Swiss chard leaves
2 large carrots, grated (about 1 ½ cups)
2 scallions, thinly sliced on the diagonal
½ cup chopped fresh parsley

1. In a small bowl, combine the orange zest, olive oil, salt, orange juice, water and tahini. Whisk together until thick and very smooth. Set aside.

2. Combine the cabbage, chard, carrots, scallions and parsley in a large bowl. Pour the dressing over the cabbage mixture and stir well to combine and coat the vegetables with the dressing.

Makes 4-6 servings.  Messy Apron Recipe
