Jerusalem Salad Recipe—Tomato Salad

Recipe, Salad, Vegetarian

Looking for a healthy alternative to the traditional Western salad??? This is one of my all time favorite salads and YES I had it in Jerusalem :-) Unlike many western salads, traditional Mediterranean salad does not have lettuce. But, if you absolutely love lettuce, you can definitely add it to this recipe.


  • 4 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 cucumber, diced
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1/2 green pepper, diced
  • 2 garlic cloved, minced
  • 2 radishes, diced
  • 1 lemon freshly squeezed
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup tahini paste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

How to:

1. Chop all of the vegetables and add them to the bowl.

2. Add the freshly squeezed lemon, tahini paste, olive oil, water, salt and pepper.

3. Mix  together with a wooden spoon.

4. Enjoy!!!

    Gosh, this is my kind of salad. This is the 2nd time I’ve seen tahini today – I MUST get some! The dressing sounds incredible with all these flavours.

    Fresh and delicious….and I love the tahini in the dressing…definitely going to have to try this out. I must sneak in a little bit of cheese though…it’s an addiction. ;)

    I make this too, it’s my favourite salad! I add loads of fresh mint & parsley as well. Tahini lemon dressing is the best!!
