Servings: 4 Servings
Maple Tahini Dressing
- 4 tablespoons tahini
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 garlic clove minced
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- generous pinch salt
- generous pinch black pepper
- 3 large oranges
- 1 4.5- ounce package Dole Power Up Greens: Baby Kale and Greens
- 1 pomegranate seeds removed
- ½ cup roasted and salted pepitas
For the dressing, in a small bowl, whisk together the tahini, maple syrup, lemon juice, and garlic. Whisk in the olive oil and salt and pepper until well blended.
To prepare the oranges, place 1 orange on it’s side and slice off both of the ends. Stand the orange up on 1 of the ends you removed. Starting at the top, use your knife to remove the peel in strips--moving downward to follow the natural curve of the orange. When all of the peel is removed, carefully place the orange on it’s side once more and slice it into thin rounds.
Divide the greens among 4 small plates or bowls. Top each with 1/4th of the pomegranate seeds, pepitas, and orange slices. Drizzle 1/4th of the dressing over each salad and serve.
