Remember that neglected jar of tahini in your pantry? You know, the one that you use for making the occasional batch of hummus?
Well, let me tell you, that jar of tahini is about to bust out of prison.
Nutritious, delicious, versatile, here is one more way to use tahini: as a salad dressing for a simple cucumber tomato salad!
A week ago, I posted a recipe for tahini-lemon sauce. So easy to make, and a hundred ways to enjoy it. I think that this one might be my new favorite? The creamy tahini, garlic and lemon juice take this simple salad to a new level, the sort of dish that would be delicious served as part of a mezze lunch along with (dream with me) hummus, baba ghanoush, cured olives and feta cheese, or as part of a summer picnic, with kebabs or burgers or grilled fish. Mmmm. Can you tell that I am anxious for warmer weather?
