Hearty and bright salads are a great way to win at the winter & health game. This salad has caramelized, sweet roasted carrots with a little cumin, tender farro, local collard greens and a soft boiled egg that will make your heart simile. Tahini is a sesame seed paste that is very common in middle eastern cuisine, a key ingredient in hummus and a great substitute for regular nut butters. It is simply pureed toasted sesame seeds. We love combining tahini with lemon juice to bring a nutty brightness to your plate today! Enjoy the beautiful colors in this dish with a bright glass of cold white wine!
