SaladLemon Tahini Dressing
  • 2 Head Butter lettuce
  • 1/2 Red onion, sliced
  • 2 tbsp Pine nuts, roasted
  • 1 Nori sheet, crumbled
  • 150 g Cherry tomatoes
  • Fresh herb, chopped
  • 2 tbsp Tahini
  • 4-5 tbsp Lukewarm water
  • 2 tbsp Freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 tbsp Maple syrup
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp Pink sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp Freshly milled pepper
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the tahini, 4 tablespoons of water, lemon juice, maple syrup, minced garlic, and salt until smooth.
  2. If the dressing is too thick, add more water, ½ tablespoon at a time, until it’s a drizzleable consistency.
  3. Cut the leaves from the stalk of the butter lettuce. Toss with a small amount of dressing and then rearrange the leaves on a serving plate, using the largest leaves on the bottom and the smallest on top, just like the orginal lettuce.
  4. Sprinkle with the chopped red onion. Crush a nori sheet with your hands and sprinkle some over the lettuce. Halve the cherry tomatoes and top the salad with them, finishing up with a sprinkle of the toasted pine nut,s, fresh herb and extra tahini dressing.
