Citrus Tahini Dressing

  • 3 tbsp Tahini
  • 1/3 cup Orange Juice freshly squeezed
  • 1/4 cup Rice Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 tsp Ginger freshly grated
  • 1/2 tsp Salt

Buddha Bowls

  • 2 cups Watermelon seedless, cubed
  • 4 mini Cucumbers thinly sliced
  • 1 cup Sweet Cherries pitted and halved
  • 2 Avocado sliced
  • 2 cup Black Rice cooked
  • 1 cup Almonds toasted


  • Combine all the dressing ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine. If the dressing seems thick, add a bit more orange juice or water until you reach the desired consistency.
  • Arrange the Buddha bowls by placing evenly dividing the watermelon, cucumbers, cherries, avocados, and rice between four bowls. Sprinkle with the toasted almonds and drizzle with the dressing. Serve immediately.
