Tahini dressing is a classic staple in raw food cuisine for good reason. It as a very distinctive yet versatile flavor and is richly satisfying. Also, it goes very well with pretty much any vegetable mix under the sun. This recipe has a very nice balance of different tastes: sweet from raw honey, acidic from apple cider vinegar, creamy richness from tahini, saltiness and depth from shoyu, and spice and flavor from chives and garlic. And a nice mellow dose of fresh cucumber. Traditionally tahini is made by grinding sesame seeds into a thick butter. You can either make the tahini yourself by using a blender or food processor to blend the sesame seeds until smooth (which can take time and patience and you may need to add some additional sesame oil) or you can purchase pre-made raw tahini in jars. Having some good salad dressings around is a great help when it comes to success on a healthy diet! This recipe was an experiment by Chef Hannah Mendenhall and she encourages you to play around with ingredients and make it your own!
Savory and saucy this dish uses both kelp and zucchini noodles and is dressed up with an Asian inspired creamy, spicy macadamia avocado sauce. The addition of snow peas, sliced broccoli and asparagus add a nice seasonal touch to this recipe. Everything here is raw aside from the roasted bell peppers which can be omitted if you wish (just add in a bit more fresh bell peppers). Another option would be to use a few tsp of chipotle pepper seasoning for a nice robust smoky flavor. Raw noodle dishes are always a hit because they are so easy to prepare and can be made in such a variety of ways. Zucchini and kelp noodles are both very neutral in flavor and will take on the dynamic flavors of any sauce.

Sheleana from Young & Raw says "I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, making raw food is easy! Contrary to the popular belief that raw food takes so much time to prepare, it can actually save you time and clean up! Yes, this bread won’t be ready for 5-7 hours, but you don’t start at the dehydrator the entire time, you place the trays in, turn it on and flip them once in between. No big deal, and then you get amazing, soft and chewy flat bread."
