Quick & Easy Post Workout Salad

After a workout I usually try to eat a salad packed with protein to prevent my body from using it’s own muscle tissue for energy and encourage muscle synthesis. This is one of my go-to salads for lunch, it has different textures from the zucchini ribbons, roasted parsnips, almonds and a poached egg to add some extra protein. I finish it off with a lemon tahini dressing for a little tang! It’s a summer favourite and on repeat when I’m at home.

Salad Ingredients:

1 Zucchini sliced into ribbons (I use a vegetable peeler for this)
1 avocado, chopped
Handful of cherry tomatoes
roasted parsnips or sweet potato (I make a bunch of roasted veggies at the beginning of the week and keep them in the fridge for salads)
1 green onion, sliced
2 tbsp. sliced almonds
1 poached egg

Lemon Tahini Dressing:
1/2 cup tahini
Juice of 1 large lemon
1 tsp. dijon
1 tsp. honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
3-6 tablespoons warm water, depending on how thick you want the dressing
pepper to taste
