ABC (Apple, Broccoli & Cranberry) Salad with a Maple Tahini Dressing

Most people think eating healthily is boring. But I beg to differ! I eat healthily 80% of the time and my meals are far from boring. My plate is always so colourful with a variety of vegetables (as you can see from my Instagram pictures) and tasty with a variety of seasonings, dressings and sauces that I create. I rarely use store-bought dressings/seasonings/sauces. I believe if I can buy a jar of sauce/dressing, I can also make it myself. Yes, it takes more time to make, but 99% it tastes better and does not contain any preservatives and nasties. If I don’t have time to make a dressing for my salad, I just squeeze some lemon juice, add a little olive oil and crack some black pepper and there you have it, a simple and quick dressing 😊

A few weeks ago, I wanted to make a quick salad and didn’t have too many fresh vegetables in my fridge. This resulted in me making this ABC salad with a quick maple tahini dressing. This salad tasted delicious that I have it several times more. So, I would like to share this quick salad recipe with all of you 😊 Enjoy πŸ₯°
