Snow Pea Salad With Creamy Tahini Dressing

Do you love an interesting salad? 
This flavorful Asian salad is made with cut up snow peas, radishes, scallions, and cilantro. It is served over a bed of greens and topped with a generous amount of thinly sliced almonds. 

Peas, Snow Peas, Vegetables, Snow Peas

Before adding the almonds and sesame seeds, I tossed the salad in a creamy tahini dressing- the perfect complement to this delicious plant-based salad.

I especially like to add sliced and then cut the slices in half of red onions to the mix.

  1. The flavors of snow peas and tahini dressing sound delicious. I use sugar snap and snow peas interchangeably, depending on which looks better and fresher.

  3. Such a crunchy, healthful and yummy salad! I bought 2 kg of snow peas and still have lots of them left...gotta make some more salads for my husband :-) Tahini dressing is one of our favourite dressings.

  4. What an interesting combination. The olives will be added here. Thank you for sharing.

  5. Mmmm.... this looks like an appealing springtime combination. Seems like the crisp vegetables -- even dressed -- might hold for a couple of days so you could simply save what you didn't use and then top fresh leafy greens and enjoy the combination yet another day (or two). Being fundamentally lazy, I'm always on the lookout for fresh vegetable salads that will last awhile in the refrigerator...

  6. YUM! I love snow peas. This looks really terrific!

  7. As a big salad fan myself, I believe there's no such thing as a boring salad - it is just sometimes people don't know how to make it exciting. This one is definitely unique and tasty; loving the tahini dressing!
