This is a recipe I learned from my Middle Eastern husband. It is a delicious way to get those very valuable brightly-colored veggies, and at the same time have a little fun. This side salad goes nicely with any main dish.

This was absolutely delicious! The mint added such a wonderful flavor. The dressing is way too much for the amount of veggies, though, so I used two very large cucumbers, doubled the rest of the veggies and the herbs, and added a green bell pepper (or you could just halve the dressing, but I was making this as a main dish, and I wanted leftovers to take to work for lunch). The dressing is more like a paste after you mix it up, but don't worry--it thins as you toss it with the veggies, but it takes a few minutes of stirring (I would recommend not seeding the cukes, so you'll have more liquid). This is a new favorite!

Loved the vegetable combination, but the tahini dressing was a thick lump of paste. I added additional olive oil and lemon juice but it still remained thick and difficult to combine with the salad. Flavor just so-so. I think I'll make the vegetable combination again but use a different dressing.

I loved the veggie combination! The tahini, if fresh is a really nice consistancy and the flavours meld nicely with the lemon and olive oil. I did add a dollop of balkan style yogurt to the dressing which i then spooned over falafels. YUM
