Gluten-Free Asian Bean Salad With Tahini Dressing

Tahini is a Middle Eastern sauce that has a delicious tang. Added to a salad like this, it results in a light, refreshing dish full of flavor.

1/4 cup tahini
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 tbsp minced garlic
2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
pinch sea salt
dash freshly cracked black pepper
4 cups fresh baby spinach
1/4 cup chopped scallions
1/2 cup snow peas (strings removed)
1 cup bean sprouts (rinsed and drained)
1 cup canned adzuki beans (drained)

In a small bowl, whisk together the tahini, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Place the spinach, scallions, snow peas, bean sprouts and beans in a large salad bowl. Pour the tahini dressing over the vegetable mixture and toss together to coat. Serve.
