Green Salad & Tahini

Crunchy and fresh green salad; home made pitta; lightly spiced lentils; a couple of falafel or bean fritters... these are all things that taste great with tahini dressing.


  • Lettuce
  • Cucumber
  • Spring Onions
  • Light Tahini
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 or 2 Lemons
  • 1 Clove Garlic
  • Water
  • Salt & Pepper

Prepare your salad vegetables by washing them and trimming them (so they’re easy to dunk in the tahini dressing)…

I used Spring Onions, Cos Lettuce and Cucumber.  Celery, Green Peppers or Radishes would also be good here

Make the Tahini dressing by whisking together 2 tbsp Light Tahini, a big drizzle of Olive Oil, the juice of 1 or 2 Lemons, 1 crushed Garlic Clove, 2 tbsp Water and some black Black Pepper

Taste and season… it might want a bit more Lemon juice, or a pinch of Salt?  If you’re after more of a dip, add less water (and/or some yoghurt).  Add more cold water if you prefer more of a dressing consistency

Refrigerate until needed… Is best served mezze dishes.  Lentils; Bean Fritters; Falafel are all good.  Slightly Pickled Beetroot is another great match
