Herby radicchio kaki salad with a creamy tahini sauce

It's me again;-)

Bitter foods are essential for good health! And because I’m on a healthy diet, I try to eat more of them. For this purpose I created a salad with a pinch of bitterness from a red radicchio. This bitterness I combined with the sweetness from a kaki, the spiciness from bell peppers, the buttery taste from pine nuts, the seasoning from herbs and the creaminess of tahini.

Bitter sweet salad with tahini Sauce

Recipe for two persons
For the salad
1 red radicchio (about 17,6 oz (500 g))
1 kaki persimmon
0,7 oz. (20 g) pine nuts
1,4 oz. (40g) flat parsley
1 handful of basil leaves
2 tbsp. pure cane sugar
4 tbsp. lemon juice
1 bell pepper

For the tahini sauce
1,4 oz. (40 g) tahini
4 tbsp. lemon juice
60 ml water
3 pinches cinnamon
2 tbsp. parsley and basil from the salad
½ tsp. salt

Five reasons to eat bitter foods:
1. They detoxify our livers
2. They balance our taste buds
3. They reduce sugar cravings
4. They help us absorb nutrients
5. They’re packed with vitamins and minerals

Love Ida and remember cooking is our passion
