Aris Latham Salad and Tahini Dressing Recipes

It is cold and icy here today.  The trees are laden down with ice.  Spring will be here soon, though.    My seeds arrived yesterday.

I ordered all organic heirloom seeds from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds in Mansfield, MO.  They have a Facebook page for anyone that wants to follow them on Facebook.  I ordered so many seeds that they sent me three packages of free seeds...Aunt Ruby's German Cherry Tomato, Parisienne Carrot, and Korean Hyssop.  I have no idea what to do with Korean Hyssop.  The package says it makes a great base for herbal tea, and it is one of the 50 Fundamental Herbs in Chinese traditional medicine.

The seeds are here!  All organic heirlooms.

I usually don't watch the videos that You Tube recommends for me, but for some reason yesterday I watched one called The Art of Raw Foods w/Aris Latham.  I am now a fan of Dr. Aris Latham, the Sun Food Gourmet.  Here is a link to the video:  The Art of Raw Foods w/Aris Latham

Aris washes his heart every morning with a young coconut.  I don't have any young coconuts, so I washed my heart the last two mornings with fresh orange juice.

He recommends having papaya every day.  Dr. Fielder eats papaya every day, too.  I will check at Walmart today to see if they have any papaya.  Many times they do not, but when they do, it tastes delicious with the freshly grated coconut.

Aris Latham always brings a handful of plums home from the market to hand out to the neighborhood children.  What a sweet thing to do! Whole Foods in Little Rock used to give out free apples to the young children.  Same concept.  I love it.

Here is Aris Latham's Salad Recipe which I must try very soon.  It's on my list today to buy some Tahini at Village Nutrition.

Aris' Salad
Shred two peeled carrots in food processor.  Put into one section of the salad bowl.
Shred two medium turnips.  Place in bowl next to the carrots.  Do not mix the ingredients together.
Shred one medium beet.  Place next to turnips.
Peel one cucumber (if it is commercial), slice in half lengthwise, then slice thin.  Place next to carrots.
Break up by hand a medium head of green leaf lettuce. Squeeze between carrots and turnips.
Cut a tomato in half, then slice into thin wedges.  Place in salad bowl.
Break up 6 leaves of romaine lettuce.  Place in a section of the bowl separate from the other lettuce.
Place black olives around the edge of the bowl.

Tahini Dressing
Blend all the following ingredients in the Vitamix for 30 seconds.  1/2 cup water, juice of 1/2 lime, small pc. of beet, 2 cloves of garlic, 6 mint leaves, small pc. of scallion, 1 tsp of liquid amino, dash of cumin, and 1/4 cup tahini.  Cut the top off of a bell pepper and remove the seeds. This will be the bowl for the dressing.  Place the pepper into the middle of the salad bowl and fill it with the tahini dressing.

To health and happiness.
