Hawaiian Salad with Pineapple Tahini Dressing

The kids requested Kahlua Pork for Sunday dinner, I came up with this tropical inspired salad to accompany it. I had some of Trader Joe’s Tropical Mix trail mix that I added, it has macadamia nuts, dried cranberries, pineapple etc it made for the perfect combo of crunch and sweet.

Dressing:

  • 1 1/2 Tbsp tahini sauce
  • 2 tsp Grade B maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp pineapple juice
  • pepper

Combine all ingredients in a small jar and shake.

Salad:

  • 1 head of romaine, chopped
  • 1/4 c pineapple chunks
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4 c nuts of your choice, toasted and chopped
  • 1/4 c dried cranberries or pineapple

Add to a large bowl drizzle with some dressing and toss to coat.

Serves 2 – 4.
