Recipe developed and tested by Diana Bruen, MS, RD.


  • 1 cup of mixed greens (no spinach)
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup cucumber, chopped
  • 1/4 cup basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup pitted Kalamata olives, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon toasted pine nuts¬†
  • 1 tablespoon green onions, thinly sliced


  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar


1. Layer mixed greens, tomatoes, cucumber, basil, olives, pine nuts, and green onions in a bowl.

2. Whisk olive oil, tahini, and vinegar until smooth.  Drizzle over salad


Additional protein option: Add 2 ounces (1/2 can) albacore tuna, drained and flaked

No white vinegar: Substitute red wine vinegar


If mal prepping and increasing the yield of the dressing, we do not recommend making in a food processor as this will result in a much thicker dressing. Instead, we recommend whisking the dressing together.
