  1. Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Deep fry the potato sticks until crispy and golden brown, about 4 minutes. Remove, and drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Deep fry the florets in two batches until golden brown; drain on paper towels. Allow the cauliflower to cool until it's just warm.
  3. Stir together tahini and olive oil in a large bowl until smooth. Mix in yogurt, lemon juice, vinegar, cumin, salt, and pepper. Add cauliflower, arugula, and lettuce; toss to coat with the dressing. Place salad onto serving plates, and sprinkle with the potato sticks.

I used the recipe as a starting point. Instead of deep-frying the cauliflower, I roasted it w/ garlic per another recipe here. The dressing was okay, but I felt it was missing something. I used Greek Yogurt and had to thin it a bit with water, but other than that followed the recipe. The arugula, tahini dressing and garlicy cauliflower were a nice mix of flavors.

I roasted the cauliflower and potato in the broiler rather than frying it. Garnished with black sesame seeds. Good, but probably not something I'd make again.
