A Five Minute Dinner Party Salad

June 19, 2017



This is the salad I take everywhere. It's the salad I turn to for pot luck dinners or when friends are coming over for dinner and I have no time to prepare, It's also the salad I take to picnics, family functions - hell it's just a damn good salad!


Green Salad with Lemon Tahini Dressing and Mixed Seeds


Serves 6


2 bunches broccolini, sliced thinly

3 cups leafy greens (rocket, baby spinach, silverbeet)

2 tbs sesame seeds 

2 tbs sunflower seeds 

2 tbs pepitas 



2 tbs tahini

1 tbs lemon juice 

1 tbs water

2 tsp olive oil

pinch salt and pepper


Blanch the broccolini in boiling water for 3-4 minutes. Drain and refresh under cool water. 

Meanwhile, combine the dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Note: tahini can split, simply persist by stirring until it comes together again. Loosen it up with a little extra olive oil and lemon juice until you reach a runny consistency. Plate up the greens and top with the dressing, and seeds. Dig in!
