This spring spinach salad with tahini dressing is not only healthy, but delicious too! I never thought spring spinach salads would be so good! The hemp oil-tahini dressing makes this spinach salad taste divine!
I just ate vegetarian Turkish sausages! Yes, it has nothing to do with this spinach salad recipe, but I wanted to make you drool! 😀 In case you didn’t know, this is actually a “traditional” recipe here in Romania. I used the quotation marks because even if this is a popular recipe here, it was adapted from the original Turkish recipe.
Romanians are crazy about “mititei”. I was too when I was little. Yesterday, I tried to make them vegetarian and I succeeded! They turned out great! I got the exact texture and taste from the real “mititei” recipe. I didn’t took any photos though, but I will definitely try this recipe again in the near future :).
Now, let me tell you something about this spring spinach salad. Because of my recent detox diet, I started experimenting with new salad and dressing recipes. I discovered that I absolutely love hemp oil and tahini! In this case, I combined the two ingredients and made an amazing tahini dressing!
This tahini dressing can turn any boring salad recipe into a delicious treat! It’s also ready really fast! Besides that, this spring spinach salad also contains radishes and a great seeds mix for some extra-crunchiness!
