Happy Friday everyone!
I’m not sure if you were aware, but yesterday was national picnic day. When I found that out yesterday morning I thought- what a great idea for dinner time!
I went about rustling in my fridge for some good picnic dinner time ideas and came up with a super tasty- almost potato salad-but not potato salad at all- salad (Long winded I know!)
By the time the man friend got home from work the sky had opened up and it was raining pretty hard- picnic fail! But because it has been so hot and dry here I was actually super excited for the rain and we just had an indoor picnic- AKA dinner at home like every other night.
The weird salad concoction was a big hit!
2 cups chopped broccoli
1 cup diced carrots
1 cup diced apple
1/4 of a red onion diced
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup tahini
2 tsp maple syrup
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup water
Blend up until smooth and creamy.
Toss salad with dressing until fully incorporated and serve either as is or on top of a bed of greens (what I prefer to do).
Super easy and delish! What I love most about salads like this is that they won’t wilt up- they stay nice and fresh in the fridge for a few days.
If the weather continues to be amazing I will definitely remake for a real picnic next week.
Hope you enjoy 🙂
