Arugula and Radish Salad with Creamy Dressing

July 4, 2012


On this hot Independence Day… we are thinking about salads! This reminded us of a visit we recently paid to our dear farming friends at Sweet Home Organics in St. Charles, IL. We came home with tomato, okra, pepper, and cucumber seedlings for the garden and huge bunches of delicious arugula and radishes to eat. Here’s a recipe for quick and creamy homemade dressing we put together to top our bounty.

Dressing:
1/4 cup olive oil
1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 1/2 tsp. tahini
1 tsp. soy sauce
3 Tbs. nutritional yeast
1/4 tsp. cracked pepper
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
pinch of oregano
Whisk in a bowl

Toss 4-6 cups of arugula, 1/2 cup of finely chopped radish greens, and 4-6 thinly sliced radishes with dressing.

Visit Kim and Rachel at their farm stand and tell them the VL sent ya! Thursdays from 10am – 6pm, Saturdays from 9am – 2pm (2012 hours, through the end of October). Directions.
