This is a salad full of contrasts. The two refreshing citrus fruits, one sweet and the other bittersweet go beautifully with the creamy textured dressing. This is absolutely beautiful in presentation for guests

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the peel and pith from the fruit, halve lengthwise and cut each half into four crosswise slices Alternate 4 slices of each fruit on each plate and add watercress either side Beat together the yogurt and tahini and spoon over the fruit.
  2. Scatter the sesame seeds on top.

I tweaked this a bit. Being rather lazy I simple cut up the grapefruit and oranges into bite size pieces. I also used peanut butter instead of tahini (I find tahini rather tasteless) and I sweetented the yogurt with a bit of honey. I thought it was terrific. Thanks Tish.

Very different and interesting salad. I used lettuce instead of watercress and probably a little less seame seeds than called for but otherwise followed the recipe as written. I thought next time it would be nice to add some additional fruits to add a different dimension to this salad which is a great addition to any meal. Thanks for sharing!
