This salad is great for your protein restriction days. Like other salads in this category, you can simply mix through some shredded chicken, salmon or tuna to upgrade it to a moderate protein salad. The tahini mint dressing really gives this salad some depth to it and makes it much more filling than just an oil based dressing.
Don’t forget to drizzle lots of healthy oil through the salad, or even 1/2 a chopped avocado.
