Crunchy Asian Veggie Salad with Orange Tahini Ginger Dressing (Whole30)

This beautiful crunchy Asian Veggie Salad with Orange-Ginger Tahini dressing is (omg!) so good! Completely vegetarian, vegan, whole30, and gluten free, you will LOVE this salad. It’s filled with fresh, delicious vegetables and sweet mandarins, then drizzled in the creamiest, most flavorful Orange-Ginger Tahini dressing. You need this recipe in your life, trust me. Make it for your next spring or summer cookout as a healthy side or entree salad with some grilled chicken!

Eat the REAL FOOD rainbow! I love veggies, like I seriously love them. Fun fact: I was a vegetarian for almost ten years and never once missed eating meat. I know it sounds kind of crazy, but it’s totally true. Obviously I’ve incorporated a lot of animal protein into my diet since that time, but I still really enjoy eating plant-based meals. Whether you’re vegetarian, pescatarian, or just love a good salad, this salad is for you!


This Orange Ginger Tahini dressing is great because it’s super flavorful and versatile. It works on salads, wraps, as a dipping sauce for my favorite Feel Good Foods eggrolls — basically anything and everything!

The finished dish - a bowl filled with crunchy, colorful vegetables and dressing with chopsticks and lime on the side.
