Bulgur bean salad with goji tahini dressing

Yesterday, I was able to make another salad. So far, every salad that I have made has been a winner but this bulgur bean salad with goji tahini dressing was just out of this world. I am just obsess with the dressing.

Lately, I have been wanting to incorporate more goji berries into my diet. After all, these are nutritional powerhouses. If you haven’t try them before this would be the perfect recipe to do so.

I got two huge tahini containers a couple of weeks back as well so mixing them both I thought would make a great base for any salad dressing.

I use sesame seeds on a regular basis but Tahini, well, yesterday was my first time using it and I was in love. This salad dressing is going to be one of my regular to go salad recipes. I am so obsess with it.

Do you have a salad dressing that you love? It is so easy to make your own salad dressings. This one take an extra minute or two but literally you can have the best tasting salad dressing in under 5 minutes.

If you are like me and love veggies, you will love this bulgur bean salad with goji tahini dressing. If you must have a gluten free version you can use quinoa instead and if you want a vegan version you can use maple syrup for the dressing.

As far as the legumes and veggies, you can really any of your choice. Salads are very versatile very versatile so anything goes really.

Enjoy!

  1. This looks so cool. Tonight is the chick pea and saffron festival here (Navelli, near L’Aquila, Italy) and my sister in law just brought some sun-dried tomatos from Sicily, so I’m going to have to make off with some to try this.

  2. Wow, you blow my mind, love Italy. Have fun on the festival, I only wish I could be there :-)

  3. Wow, me encantan los tomates secos, así que estoy segura que este hummus me va a encantar. Yo suelo hacer un montón de pesto rojo, con tomate seco básicamente, y lo guardo en un tarro de cristal en la nevera y casi todos los días sale el pesto. O para una tostadita, unas verduras al vapor… para lo que sea, me encanta! Tengo que probar tu hummus.

  4. Rosanna, es fabuloso lo rico que esta y lo facil que es hacer. Hago mogollon siempre que lo hago y mi familia se lo come que es visto y no visto :-)
