Sesame-Mixed Vegetable “Noodles” with Herbs

(I just made this for dinner – Yum! The daikon radish is a liver cleanser, & the sesame tahini & sesame seeds are an absorbable form of calcium)

Sesame Dressing
1 cup sesame tahini
1/4 cup sesame oil
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup mellow red miso
3/4 cup plus 2 TB pure water
1/4 cup black sesame seeds
In a large bowl, whisk together the tahini, sesame oil, lemon juice, miso, and 1/2 cup of the water. Add the remaining water a bit at a time and continue whisking until smooth. Stir in the sesame seeds and set aside.
4 cups daikon radish, julienned on a mandoline
2 red bell peppers, cored and julienned
3 medium zucchini, julienned on a mandoline
3 medium carrots, peeled and julienned on a mandoline
6 baby bok choy, leaves thinly sliced on a bias
3 scallions, whites and about 1 inch of green, thinly sliced
1 big handful cilantro leaves
sea salt
In a large bowl, toss all the prepared vegetables and the sesame dressing until evenly coated. Season to taste with salt.
