Colorful Summer Salad with Turmeric Tahini dressing!

It's too hot to cook for most folks but it's not to hot to chop a few veggies, whip up a little homemade salad dressing and enjoy a nutrient dense and delicious salad!  Feel free to substitute whatever you like or don't like in this recipe.  It's very flexible, which is one of my favorite things about it!

1/2 head green cabbage, chopped
1/2c cilantro, chopped
