Salata Tahini--Middle Eastern Tahini Salad

Recipe by chef FIFI
READY IN: 30mins




  • *May need to adjust tahini and water levels to desired consistency*. Consistency should be creamy.
  • Dice up tomatoes and cucumbers and combine them together in a medium bowl.
  • Place garlic, hot pepper and salt in a mortar.
  • Smash until mushed.
  • Tahini dressing takes a bit of stirring to become creamy so, you can either add tahini,and water in a bowl by itself and mix or you can add to the same bowl with the cucumbers and tomatoes.
  • Add lemon in increments to achieve desired tartness.
  • Stir the dressing until smooth and creamy.
  • combine everything including garlic/hot pepper together making sure you have added the mint.
  • Take tbsp of dried mint, Place in hand and take other hand and rub together, this will sort of grind the mint up smaller and separate it from any stems.
  • Place in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
  • Serve with a swirl of olive oil on top.
  • Enjoy!
