Tahini-Miso Slaw

Sometimes you need some help coming up with ideas. I love salads that are packed with vegetables, but sometimes I get stuck in the typical lettuce-cucumber-tomato salad base rut. This recipe proved to be interesting–the cranberries seemed maybe a little toooo interesting.  I did not have any dried cranberries on hand, so I did not… Continue reading Tahini-Miso Slaw
