Salad therapy – Mediterranean delight

One can argue whether it’s Greek or Turkish influenced but the bottom line is we have hit upon a wicked dressing for our Mediterranean inspired salads moving forward.  One of our cupboard or fridge essentials is Tahini paste (ground sesame seed paste).  It allows us to make our own humus and mutabal at home and now a third use as a core ingredient in a salad dressing.

What do I need to make it?

  • 2 tbsp Tahini paste
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste

How much will I make?

Dresses 2 main salad portions or 4 side portions

How do I make it?

Dead simple – whisk all the ingredients in a bowl and pour over some mixed salad leaves, feta cheese, cherry tomatoes and cucumber (FYI – tomatoes and cucumber from our garden :-)).  Would have added some olives but didn’t have the queen olives we love in our salads.
