Cucumber Chickpea Salad + Lemon-Herb Tahini Sauce

by Dishing Up the Dirt

Prep Time: 15 minutes  |  Cook Time: 0 minutes  |  Serves: 2-4


  • 1 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas -if from the can rinsed and drained
  • 1 medium-sized cucumber, chopped into 1/4 inch chunks
  • 4-5 radishes, sliced into 1/4 inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup dill, finely chopped
  • pinch of crushed red pepper flakes

For the Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup water + more to thin if necessary
  • juice from 1 large lemon or 2 smaller lemons
  • 1-2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 2 scallions, diced- white and light green parts only
  • 1/4 cup parsley, diced
  • 1/4 dill cup, diced
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • fine sea salt to taste


  1. Prepare the dressing by whisking all the ingredients together until smooth. This works best with an immersion blender or food processor to achieve the smoothest consistency. Taste test and adjust seasonings if need be. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl toss the chickpeas, cucumber, radishes and herbs together. Drizzle with 1/2 the dressing. Mix until well combined. Sprinkle with crushed red pepper flakes, taste test, and add more dressing as needed. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
