Tahini Vegetable Medley Salad (raw, GF, vegan)

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Raw-Tahini-Vegetable-Medley-Salad2Yum!  This salad is Middle Eastern inspired.  The sauce is amazingly addictive as well as gluten and dairy free.  You will want to lick the bowl clean!  I suggest making a double batch of the sauce.  Any left overs of the sauce would make a wonderful salad dressing or a dipping sauce for veggies or some type of spring roll!

I made a double batch of this salad today thinking my husband could enjoy it as a side dish with tonight’s dinner and tomorrows lunch.  He took one bite and ate the whole thing all by his lonesome!  I take that as a compliment and it brings me a huge smile. I hope you find this Tahini Vegetable Medley Salad as addictive as I have.

I should quickly note, if you don’t own a spiralizer you can simply use a potato peeler… peeling the zucchini and carrots down to the core.  This will make “fettuccine-like” noodles. I do however recommend pampering yourself with a spiralizer, they are so much fun to use, specially for kids!

You can also be create and make all sorts of veggie noodles.  For inspiration, click (here).

Ingredients: serves 2-4

Salad base:

  • 1/2 lb zucchini, spiralized (2 medium-sized)
  • 2 carrots, peeled and spiralized
  • 1/4 green cabbage head, shredded
  • 1 1/2 cup broccoli, florets only
  • sesame seeds and more mint, for garnish

Tahini Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup raw tahini
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Aminos / Tamari
  • 6 Tbsp water
  • 2 Tbsp raw agave nectar or sweetener of choice
  • 2 Tbsp raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp roasted sesame oil
  • 2 tsp stone-ground mustard
  • Pinch sea salt
  • Fresh Black Pepper


Salad base:

  1. Spiralize the zucchini and carrots.  If not eating right away I suggest sprinkling the zucchini with salt. This will help to remove the water from the zucchini.  Set aside as you prepare the remaining ingredients. If you plan on eating all of it right away, it’s fine to skip the salting process. If you don’t have a spiralizer you can use a potato peeler and make long, thin noodles.
  2. Cut the cabbage into quarters, using your large chef’s knife remove the core from one of the quarters and discard it.  Chop into small pieces.  If you are going to make large batches of this, you could easily use your food processor to ease your chopping hand.
  3. Chop the broccoli into small florets.  Did you know you can spiralize the broccoli stems?
  4. Toss all the veggies together.

Tahini Sauce:

  1. Stir or using your blender, mix together the Tahini, soy replacement, water, sweetener, vinegar, hot sauce, oil, mustard, salt and pepper. Tasting to adjust seasoning if needed.
  2. When you’re ready to serve, add the sauce to the veggies tossing it with your hands, coating everything evenly.
  3. Garnish with mint and sesame seeds.
  4. Stored in a glass container in the fridge for up to 2-3 days.

    What can you use instead of tahini?

    • amie-sue says:

      Howdy Chris,
      You can use any nut butter instead if you wish. The flavor will be altered a bit from what I made, but there is nothing with that. :)

    This website is awesome!! I’ve made several dishes, kale chips, drinks from it and my husband and I love your recipes, all the pictures, and easy to follow steps.

    We are trying to get used to the “green” taste, but so far our second month of 80% raw diet is going good, thanks to your website. We’ve been sharing this website with our friends.

    God bless,

    Hi Amie/Sue,

    I had my grandson (19) over for dinner tonight and gave him the above. This is a boy whose mum raised him with pizza, hamburgers and french fries….can you imagine! His comment was `How I missed this good food! This is so nice……..! I love it` For ages I am trying to get him over to `our side` and with recipes as yours it is going to work! Thanks! btw I am from the Netherlands……
    love Jokuh

    • amie-sue says:

      Dear Jokuh,
      SCORE!! We won the heart of a 19 year old! That is a win for sure. What a blessing. Keep planting these little “Seeds” in front of him…in time he will crowd out the unhealthy foods and replace them with more nutritious foods! Thank you for sharing that with me, it made my day. Many blessing are heading your way in the Netherlands. hehe amie sue

    Are there any substitutes for Tahini? It is so high in calories and when I am training I have to monitor those carefully…..and I dont want to give up this dish! Help!!

    • amie-sue says:

      Roo… well that’s tough because the Tahini lends a particular flavor which is what this recipe is about. You can try decreasing the amount used and increase the water a bit. You will need to play with it to see if you still get the flavor you want with the least amount of Tahini used. Eat smaller portions of it to get the satisfaction of the flavor…indulge in it and monitor the other foods for the day to watch the fat intake. If I could wave my magic wand and zap those fat calories out, I would. haha Those are my best options. amie sue
