I have a delicious secret for you on this fine Friday afternoon. The perfect way to end the week. Prepare yourself, as I’m about to blow your mind. Okay…here it is…Did you know that adding a bit of tahini (sesame paste) to your dressing can yield a luscious and creamy dressing without any diary!? It’s true! Okay, maybe that’s not the most exciting news to end the week, but it’s a nifty trick that I wanted to share with you. As much as a love mayo and creamy mayo-based salads, they can sometimes be too heavy.
When I envisioned this salad, my goal was to make a refreshing rice dish with a light & creamy dressing with tons of fresh herbs. Mint and dill were my weapons of choice. I’m not sure anything is more refreshing than fresh mint! I opted to add some cooling cucumber along with some toasty walnuts for added texture. Some fresh lemon juice finishes off the salad nicely. This salad would be ideal for spring and summer BBQs and picnics. Feel free to add some chopped kale to up the nutrition factor for a healthy, filling week day lunch.
Have a brilliant weekend everyone! xo
