INGREDIENTS

Veggies

  • 1 small cauliflower
  • 1 beetroot (anywhere between a golf ball and tennis ball size)
  • handful of chopped beet greens (optional) 
  • 1 small onion 
  • handful of raisins

Dressing

  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 tablespoon raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Bragg's Amino Acids
  • 1 tablespoon water (or 2 depending on thickness of tahini)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, finely grated
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup (Grade B) 
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander

DIRECTIONS

  1. Make the tahini sauce by putting all the sauce ingredients into a small food processor or blending with a hand blender.  Mix until creamy smooth.
  2. Chop the cauliflower into tiny florets or tiny pieces. Add the leaves, if there are any good ones.
  3. Grate the beetroot (removing any tough end bits first).
  4. Finely chop the onion.
  5. Put the chopped cauliflower, grated beetroot, chopped onion and raisins in a salad bowl. Add beet greens (if desired). 
  6. Mix in the sauce until everything is nicely coated.
  7. Enjoy as part of a salad buffet or with potato wedges. 

Store raw-slaw in the fridge for a day or two. The flavor increases when marinated. After two days, the salad tends to get soggy, so try to eat fresh or within a day or two.
