Expert Tips

  • Tahini is a thick paste made from ground sesame seed. It is used as a condiment or ingredient in Middle Eastern cooking. Most grocery stores today stock it near the ethnic foods or in the health food section of the store. It is also sometimes found in a store’s refrigerated section.
  • For a heartier salad, add 1 1/2 cups cut-up cooked chicken.
