Easy, simple, and delish! We love the crunchy, juicy texture of this salad and the fact that it has a nice dose of protein in it from hemp seeds. And of course you can never go wrong with a tahini dressing, at least in our book!


For the salad:

  • 3 cups thinly shredded red cabbage
  • 1 large granny smith apple, shredded
  • 2 tbsp hemp seeds

For the dressing:

  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 teaspoons agave nectar or maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 – 1/2 tsp sea salt (to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar


1. Whisk dressing ingredients together and set aside.

2. Dress the shredded vegetables and hemp seeds with dressing; you can use as much as you like, but make sure you coat everything well! (I think I used about a half cup.) Serve.
