Broccolini Salad w. Tahini Dressing & Pine Nuts
I know that this sounds simple (read: boring and uninspired), and it is simple, but it's also somehow magically delicious! Something about the combination of creamy tahini, buttery pine nuts, and crunchy broccolini and radishes worked really well.
1 bunch broccolini
1 bunch radishes
1/4 cup pine nuts
2 heaping tablespoons tahini
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste
1. Wash the broccolini and radishes. Cut the broccolini on the bias into manageable chunks. "Top and tail" and quarter the radishes.
2. Toast the pine nuts in a dry pan over low heat. While the nuts are toasting...
3. Mix the dressing: Combine the tahini, vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper.
4. Toss the veggies, dressing, and pine nuts. Devour.
