Simlpe Salad With Tahini Dressing

Ingredients

Ingredients for dressing:
1/2 cup tahini
1/2 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon finely chopped mint leaves

Preparation

1
Directions for dressing:
2
Into a bowl, put all the ingredients but water. Stir to combine.
3
Gradually start adding water, 2 tbsp at a time, mixing after each addition, until you use all the water. You will have smooth, dense dressing. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside.
4
Directions for salad:
5
Dice tomatoes and banana peppers, add parsley and mint, and stir to combine.
6
Add simple salad to the tahini dressing and stir to combine.
7
TIP 1: I’m using banana peppers, because I grow them in my garden. You can surely use your favorite kind of pepper.
8
TIP 2: Tahini dressing pares wonderfully with grilled meat. Just substitute onion and garlic powder for fresh onion and garlic. Follow the above directions, leaving out onion and garlic powder. Grate the onion and squeeze out the juices, finely grate garlic, add them to tahini dressing, and stir to combine. Now you have a new addition on your picnic table
