Many thanks to my sister, Denise, for giving me the inspiration for this salad. She told me about a sample she had at Trader Joe’s using their new Tahini Dressing.

Because I always prefer to make my own, I thought I would give it a try. This recipe will definitely be one I will make again and try using the tahini dressing with a variety of dishes.
