1 fruit, 1 vegetable, 2 fat
2 medium seedless navel oranges (peeled and segmented)
1 medium avocado (halved, pitted, peeled, sliced)
3 tablespoons non-fat plain yogurt
1 tablespoon tahini
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro, for garnish
1 teaspoon lightly toasted sesame seeds, for garnish
Arrange the orange segments alternately with the avocado slices on 4 salad plates.
In small bowl, whisk tahini with 1 tablespoon yogurt to loosen it. Mix in remaining yogurt, cumin, and salt to taste. If sauce is too thick to drizzle, you may need to add a teaspoon or two of water.
Drizzle 1 tablespoon tahini yogurt sauce over each salad. Garnish with cilantro and sesame seeds and serve immediately.
