Simple Pressed Salad & Tahini Dressing

  • 1 head of cabbage, thinly shredded
  • 3 carrots, cut into matchsticks
  • 2 scallions, minced
  • 1 apple, cut into matchsticks
  • 1 tsp. sea salt

Combine cabbage, carrots, scallions, apple and sea salt in a large mixing bowl.  Work the salt into the vegetables by squeezing and pressing with your hands.  Place vegetables into a salad press and apply pressure for 1-2 hours.  If you do not have a salad press (not many people do!) you can leave the veggies inside the mixing bowl and place a dinner plate on top of them.  Then, put a heavy pot filled with water on top of the plate.  Let that press for 1-2 hours.  Pour off water that releases from the vegetables. Can eat as is, or combine with Tahini Dressing to make a mayo-less cole slaw.

Mix the greens, sprouts and edible flowers in a large bowl.  Whisk raspberry jam, local honey, oil, raspberry vinegar, and sea salt. Top salad with Raspberry dressing.
