  • SERVES: 2-4
  • PREP: 10 minutes

A light, savory dish to kick off the New Year from our friend, Jess Damuck.

The first week of January has us in that kinda-healthy mood (for now, anyway), and we're definitely feeling the need for a cleansing meal to kick off the New Year. So we turned to the queen of salad herself, Jess Damuck, our friend, food stylist and author of Salad Freak: Recipes to Feed a Healthy Obsession, for inspo. This recipe uses winter produce like radicchio and citrus to create a sweet, savory and all around well-balanced salad finished with a rich, creamy tahini-based dressing, sliced dates, and crunchy pomegranate seeds. Start 2023 out right!
