Cooking Directions

  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  1. I loved this! So much better than typical cole slaw (probably because I love tahini). I unfortunately did not have any feta on hand (but I think it would be even better with it) and I replaced the asparagus with broccoli prepared exactly as the asparagus would be because I didn't have any asparagus.

  2. I had everything except cabbage and ended up having to use green cabbage instead due to our poor selection at the grocery store. We thought it was a bit bland. Next time I will follow another reviewers advace and add Tabasco more onions and maybe even try lime juice. I will definitly try this again - Read more ...
  3. I had everything but the tahini I substituted apple cider vinegar and also added a dash of salt to the dressing and a few drops of Tabasco. This was delicious! Like others I also omitted the dill.
  4. 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 like peanut butter almost! This may be a good salad with a different dressing for - Read more ...
  5. THIS RECIPE IS AMAZING! The most important ideas/comments/notes are: 1. The dressing IS incredible! I've been looking for the perfect lemon tahini dressing ever since I ate at Mountain Oasis in Flagstaff Arizona and this one is a close second!

  7. 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 and it was a real hit!! Thank you
  8. This salad was excellent with just a few changes. I mixed up the cabbage, radishes, green onion, and tahini dressing early in the day and let that sit in the fridge. Later on I thought it needed a little something, so I added about 2 Tbsp of mayo and 1 Tbsp of apple cider vinegar. - Read more ...
  9. This salad tastes way better on the second day! It was pretty good the evening I made it but when I brought it for lunch the second day it was even better. (If you intend to keep it over night don't add the cheese until you are ready to serve individual portions as it will - Read more ...
