chickpea-tahini salad

Happy Valentine’s Day– nothing says “I love you” like a salad! I’m really not kidding, especially if it’s a super-tasty one, like this Chickpea-Tahini Salad. Quick and easy to make (if you use canned chickpeas like I did) and really flavorful, this is my kind of lunch. Just take chickpeas, red onion, red pepper and herbs and mix them up in a lemony, garlicky tahini dressing with all the good spices. Grab a fork and enjoy.

I scaled back the recipe to use just one can of chickpeas. Even so, I had leftovers, and the next day I mixed in some canned tuna, celery and cherry tomatoes. Also yum, and my extra dressing was great drizzled all over a shawarma-ish chicken and Israeli salad pita sandwich thingie I made for dinner the other night.

For the recipe, see Everyday Dorie by Dorie Greenspan, and head over to Cook the Book Fridays to see how the group liked this one.

  1. This is so versatile – loved it!

  2. I made the same quantity with one can and we still had leftovers too. We enjoyed the flavors of this recipe.

  3. Truly enjoyable. I did the same thing with some tuna and mixed it together. Really good.

  4. The pita sandwich sounds good to me. There are not too many places that this salad can’t go.

  5. Yours looks so gorgeous plated over those greens ! We loved this one and will be making it on repeat. A keeper for sure 🙂

  6. We love this too! Delicious!

  7. I get it…Salads can be a labor of love at times with all the chopping so definitely says I love you. This one had tasty dressing!

  8. Pretty presentation also, Stephanie. I’m looking forward to making this salad – and, especially the Tahini dressing – when I get home in April. Did it ever get a ringing seal of approval from all of you.

  9. Such a beautiful presentation, and so good for you!
