Asian Sesame Crunch Salad
No dinner party is complete without a show-stopping salad! That’s why we partnered with Arman of The Big Man’s World to whip up a light but complex Asian Sesame Crunch Salad.
“Let’s be real here- When it comes to cooking and hosting dinner parties, we’d all love the easy option, without sacrificing on taste. When you’re cooking with cartons, all you have to do is toss the empty cartons into your recycling bin – eco-friendly and a breeze!
This healthy Asian Sesame Crunch salad will fit the bill, and it’s totally dietary lifestyle friendly- It’s completely paleo, vegan, gluten free, dairy free and grain free! You can also easily up the protein with some chickpeas, animal or vegetable protein of choice!”

In a mixing bowl, combine your almond butter with unsweetened almond milk and whisk until fully combined.
Add your liquid aminos (or gluten free soy sauce), orange juice, minced garlic, grated ginger and red pepper flakes and mix until a thick dressing is formed. Stir through sesame seeds.
Let dressing sit and prepare salad by adding all ingredients into a large salad bowl. Mix to combine, before adding half the dressing, mixing once again. Serve salad, and drizzle remaining half portion over the top.
If dressing is too thick, thin out with more unsweetened almond milk.
