Creamy Tahini Dressing on summer salad

Creamy and slightly sweet, this sauce dresses any salad beautifully. I whipped this dressing up in less than 5 minutes and drizzled it all over one of favorite summer time salads. My good friend Christina had brought a similar salad to a camping trip last summer, and ever since, I mindfully choose the sweetest perfectly ripened organic peaches form the market so I can make a version of that salad.

For this lunch in particular I combined about 3-4 cups of greens (arugula and spinach), with a large handful of sliced red cabbage, a large peach, 1 very large avocado, 2 TBS pecans, 3 TBS minced dill. Everything organic, everything local.

The nice crunch from the cabbage, combined with the juicy peaches pair wonderfully with the mild bitterness of the arugula and rich creaminess of the avocado. Add to that the sweet tahini dressing and pungent dill, and you got yourself a party of the senses in your mouth!!
