  • About

The word felaheen refers to the farmer who tills the soil. What makes this salad so good is the nutty flavor of the tahini with the tart bite of the lemon and crushed garlic mixed in with the fresh, crisp vegetables. Enjoy this refreshingly different garden salad at a barbecue, a picnic, or take it to a potluck.


Specialty Ingredients

  • Tahini, which can be found in specialty markets or online.


Prepare Ahead
