Green Flakes Salad

So the idea of the big ass salad is to get as much of your nutrients in one big ass bowl.  I’m not usually a big fan of coconu-some people say it’s the taste and some people say it’s the texture–I think they both suck.  But for whatever reason this comes together quite well. I think because it seems quite tropical I can imagine myself sitting on the beach, stuffing my face with this salad, acting like a mall Hawaiian.

You can easily make this a salad for two or cut the ingredients in half and have it as a small salad with your dinner.

You can also use it as just one big ass salad and have your “one meal a day” here.

If you’re having a bean dish then you don’t have to add the beans to the salad, or you can just have double the beans and light a nag Champa incense stick.

I purposely left the nuts out of this one because of the lemon tahini dressing will give you the fact that you need but if you use a different dressing recipe you might want to add 1/4 cup of nuts to this salad.
