For the Tahini Herb Sauce;

1/4 cup tahini

Juice of 2 lemons

Zest of 1 lemon

1 clove of smashed garlic

Dash of maple syrup

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Pinch of kosher salt OR Bragg’s Seasoning

1/4 cup of mixed fresh herbs very finely chopped (I used parsley, basil, oregano, thyme and mint but use what you love)

2 tablespoons water


  1. Place the grains in a large bowl.
  2. Add the greens next to the grains, then the assorted vegetables and protein.
  3. Sprinkle over the crunchy ingredients, top with the toppings.
  4. Drizzle over the sauce.
  5. Serve and enjoy.


For the sauce:

  1. In a medium bowl add all the ingredients except the water. Mix everything together, it will start off very thin and then thicken up. If it’s too thick add a tablespoon or two of water and keep mixing. Taste, add a little more salt, pepper or water to taste.
  2. The dressing will last 4 days in the fridge.
