  • Dressing:

    • ½ cup tahini
    • 2 tsp. lemon zest
    • 3 tsp. orange zest
    • 3 Tbsp. lemon juice
    • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
    • ½ tsp. garlic powder
    • ¼ tsp. smoked paprika
    • ¼ tsp. salt

    • 1 (5 oz.) bag spinach-arugula mix
    • 2 oranges, peeled and segmented
    • 1 cup sliced, cooked beets
    • 1 avocado, sliced
    • 1 (15.5 oz.) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
