Ingredients

Salad

  • 2 cups Chickpeas or Garbanzo beans soaked & boiled
  • 2 cups Baby spinach
  • 2 English cucumbers or any other variety medium sized

Dressing

  • 2 tablespoons Tahini (sesame paste)
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon juice
  • Salt - to taste

Instructions

Salad

  • Soak garbanzo beans overnight. Boil it with a bit of salt. You may also use canned beans.
  • Slice cucumbers vertically using a peeler. The slices need to be medium thickness. Not too thin, not too thick. Put the slices in a bowl of cold water. This will make them crisp. Drain the water, roll up the cucumber in rolls, as shown in the salad picture.
  • Add the baby spinach, boiled garbanzo beans and the cucumber roll-ups in a salad bowl. Drizzle it with Tahini dressing. 

    I sprinkled bit of a red chili powder, just for the aesthetics :) What now? Don't we all do it to make the food look preet(ier)? :)

    Enjoy.

Dressing

  • Make tahini dressing by combining Tahini, water, lemon juice and a pinch of salt. Mix it in a blender. You may optionally add a drizzle of olive oil.
