INSTRUCTIONS For Mediterranean Green Salad 

Tahini Dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together all the ingredients except for the water. Taste for flavor adding any extra you might like. Add the water or lemon juice one tablespoon at a time to thin as needed to desired consistency.

Assemble salad: Prepare your salad, layer as you like adding half the chickpeas and top with dressing.


In place of fresh cooked or canned chickpeas, try adding Crispy Roasted Chickpeas for crunch!

For more dressing options, try this Vegan Ranch, Tahini-Miso Dressing or Healthy Flax + Evo Balsamic Vinaigrette.

As with most salad recipes, use however much you like of each salad ingredient.


Refrigerator: Leftover salad can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days, in a covered container. You can store the salad and dressing separately or together.

Meal prep: For meal prepping, I recommend storing the dressing and salad separately until ready to serve.
