Salmon Salad with Harissa Tahini Dressing
Another day, another salad. But let's change it up from my regular lemon olive oil vinaigrette to a new harissa tahini dressing. This dressing is healthy and so enjoyable on any kind of salad or nourish bowl. It's thick and nutty from the tahini, and spicy from the harissa. I topped this easy salmon salad with the dressing and it amped up the taste so much more! So, if this harissa tahini dressing sounds like it would be up your alley, give this recipe a try!
