Quite tasty. The tahini dressing made the whole dish sing. We used arugula instead of spinach. Delicious!













Trans-fat Free, Good source of fiber


For the dressing:
½ cup lemon juice
cup olive oil, extra-virgin
cup tahini (sesame paste)
2 tablespoons honey
2 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon salt
black pepper
freshly ground to taste
For the salad:
1 pound red skinned potatoes
1 pound chicken tenders
¼ teaspoon salt
1 pinch salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
freshly ground
1 tablespoon olive oil, extra-virgin
½ small garlic cloves
4 cups baby spinach
1 cup baby peas
shelled English or thawed frozen peas
1 tablespoon shallots
finely chopped


To prepare dressing:

Combine lemon juice, ⅓ cup oil, tahini, honey and minced garlic in a blender, a jar with a tight-fitting lid or a medium bowl. Blend, shake or whisk until smooth.

Season with 1 teaspoon salt and pepper or to taste.

To prepare salad:

Place a steamer basket in a large saucepan, add 1 inch of water and bring to a boil.

Put potatoes in the basket and steam until barely tender when pierced with a skewer, 15 to 20 minutes, depending on size.

When cool enough to handle, slice or quarter. Meanwhile, toss chicken with ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side.

Transfer to a clean cutting board to cool. Shred into bite-size pieces. Season a wooden salad bowl by rubbing with ½ clove garlic and a pinch of salt.

Chop the garlic and add to the bowl along with the potatoes and mâche (or spinach). Pour ½ cup dressing over the potatoes and greens; gently toss to coat. (Cover and refrigerate the remaining ¾ cup dressing for up to 3 days.)

Add peas, shallot and the shredded chicken; gently toss and serve.
