The bright, fresh flavors of mint and lemon-tahini dressing provide just the right counterbalance for the bitter bite of radicchio in this salad. For the tastiest radicchio, go for a crisp, fresh head with tight leaves and little to no bruising. For a kid-friendly version, swap chopped romaine or spinach for the radicchio. Serve as a side with grilled lamb chops or chicken or double it for a satisfying vegetarian main.
How to Make It
Whisk together tahini, fresh lemon juice, water, minced garlic, white wine vinegar, kosher salt, and black pepper in a small bowl. Toss together chopped radicchio; unsalted chickpeas, drained and rinsed; sliced English cucumber; and chopped fresh mint in a medium bowl. Gently toss with dressing.
