Fatoosh Salad
Recipe type: salad
Serves: 4
This light and healthy salad is from the Canyon Ranch cookbook, Nourish, though I've omitted the pita chips to make it gluten-free. You can add chicken or salmon to it to make a main course.
  • Dressing:
  • 2 teaspoons sesame tahini
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground sumac (a Middle Eastern Spice)
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • Salad:
  • 1 cup canned garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup chopped romaine lettuce
  • ½ cup chopped tomatoes
  • ½ cup peeled and diced cucumbers
  • ¼ cup diced red onions
  • 1 tablespoon toasted pine nuts
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh mint
  1. For the dressing, whisk together the tahini, lemon juice, sumac, water, olive oil, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.
  2. In a separate larger bowl, combine the garbanzo beans, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions.
  3. Add the dressing to the salad and toss well.
  4. Add the pine nuts and chopped mint and toss again.
