Ingredients (serves two):


  • 1 can (15oz) garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained and rinsed
  • spring salad mix, or any salad mix you prefer
  • handful grape or cherry tomatoes, halved

Lemon-Tahini Dressing

  • 4 tablespoons tahini
  • juice of one large lemon
  • dash of mineral salt
  • dash of garlic salt

Start with your dressing by combing all the ingredients except for the water. Taste for flavor adding any extra you might like. Add the water or lemon juice one tablespoon at a time as needed to thin to desired consistency.
