Smear salad plates with tahini dressing, top with thinly shaved raw beets, carrots, radishes and leafy greens and enjoy a unique, fresh, crisp and colorful salad. Of course you'll scrape your plate clean.
This salad is delish, but it's the tahini vinaigrette that is amazing. It is so good that it makes a great dip for veggies, too. This dressing will change the way you think about salads. Guaranteed.
When I served it at a dinner party recently, not a leaf of arugula was left on a plate. It looks great arranged on individual plates or on a large platter for a buffet.
Toasting cumin seeds in a skillet and then blending them into a smokey vinaigrette makes an unforgettable dressing. Corn, apples, tomatoes and avocados add flavor. Tortilla chips and pepitas add crunch.
It takes very few ingredients to create an heirloom tomato salad worthy of applause.. This one has a touch of balsamic and olive oil, a couple of fresh herbs and crumbles of cheese to enhance the tomatoes' sublime sweetness.
Next time you need to bring a dish for a luncheon or dinner or are looking for an easy-to-prepare dish to complete any meal, make this delicious toasted couscous salad. Like the basic black dress, it is so versatile it fits in anywhere. I call it my go-to salad and once you make it, I know it will become yours, too.
