You can see the recipe in it's original form here, and my version is as follows.
The Best Salad Ever- Pixiepine Version
Salad Ingredients: serves 2
2 cups mixed greens and baby spinach, chopped roma tomatoes
1 cup warm
1/2 cup of cucumber
2 tablespoon sunflower seeds
vegan tuna sub/tempeh/smoked tofu/whatever else sounds good!
Dressing Ingredients: serves 2
1 teaspoon tahini
1 juice from a lemon
a splash of
a dash of honey
sprinkles of onion powder, garlic powder, and chardonnay smoked salt
Cook and cool quinoa. Combine all ingredients, then toss with dressing. Top with sunflower seeds.
This was deeeelicious and filling. My honey took
a look and was concerned at all the bits and bobs in there, but polished off three helpings once he tasted it- tested and approved!
We rounded the meal out with homemade baba ganoush (using homemade tahini!) and some sprouted grain tortillas. Stellar!
And even though it's almost summer, I enjoyed a few glasses of this fun spiced wine while I repainted an old bookshelf...relaxation, yay! The wine is from Leelanau Cellars and is suggested for summer sangria too..mmmm!
