  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Blanch asparagus until just tender, drain, and immediately plunge into ice water to stop the cooking process. When the asparagus is cold, drain and slice on the diagonal into 1-inch pieces.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together tahini, water, lemon juice, and garlic. Stir in sugar to taste.
  3. Toss together asparagus, red cabbage, radishes, green onions, feta, pine nuts, and dill in a large bowl. Pour in tahini dressing and mix to combine.

I really thought this was a great recipe, until I tasted it! I went out and bought tahini for this recipe, as I have never used it before, and was a bit taken aback with the flavor of it, it's l...

Okay. This recipe was pretty freaking good. Make more dressing. Instead of water add lemon juice to the dressing. You can add more dill, this recipe is conservative. It sounds crazy but I had co...

I love this recipe! I did not have to change a thing and the dill really adds that extra touch. I did double the tahini dressing recipe, it was just so good. I made this for a vegan luncheon ...
