I enjoyed this salad yesterday afternoon, hiding away from the heat of the day in the deliciously cool kitchen to the soundtrack of some chilled summer tunes with a new magazine for my entertainment. It was heavenly.
I was craving something crisp, fresh and cooling, with a bit of zing. And that’s just what this salad is. The cabbage provides a bit of crunch, the lemon is refreshing and (naturally) tangy. Whilst the honey offsets this and the tahini brings it all together… A plate of happiness.
Crunchy Turkey Tahini Salad
Baby leaf salad (I used a small bag of baby leaf salad reduced from Waitrose)
1/8th of a white cabbage, chopped finely
2 spring onions, chopped finely
1/2 yellow pepper, chopped finely
1 turkey (or chicken) breast, grilled and chopped up
1/3 lemon, juiced
1/2 tablespoon runny honey
1/2 tablespoon tahini
Mix all the veg and turkey together in a large bowl.
In a separate, smaller, bowl stir together the lemon juice, honey and tahini until fully combined.
Pour all over the salad and use the mixing spoon to ensure that everything is fully coated in dressing.
Plate and enjoy!
A simple summer salad to cool down on hot days.
On a side note, I now have Instagram! I didn’t have space for it on my diddy iPhone when I was living in BA but have finally sorted that out (…deleted loads of stuff) – I’m at cherries_chisme 🙂
What foods have you been enjoying to escape the heat this summer (or last summer for those in the Southern hemisphere!)?
