Tahini Chicken Salad

This Tahini Chicken Salad Recipe has quickly topped my list of favorite salads. I probably eat this salad three times a week for lunch, and I never tire of it. The texture of the fresh crunchy cabbage, kale and shredded broccoli stems topped with a creamy tahini sauce is absolute perfection! Early in the week or on Sunday night, I just chop up the crunchy and delicious greens and keep them in a tupperware container in the fridge. This way, I’ve got them ready to go, and just need to toss in some chicken (which I usually have from dinner leftovers) and the dressing. When I’m feeling particularly lazy, I buy a bag of Trader Joe’s Cruciferous Crunch salad mix and use that instead. Super easy. But the real star of this dish is the insanely delicious tahini sauce. I just buy the pre made kind (from Trader Joe’s) and thin it out a bit with lemon juice and water. I am ADDICTED to it! This is a really versatile Weight Watchers salad recipe too…you can use salmon or shrimp instead of the chicken, and/or add in any other veggies you like. Enjoy!
