Arugula Olive Salad with Tahini Dressing
Tomatoes, if in season, would be a great addition to this salad. For a bit of heat, add a pinch or two of red pepper flakes to the Tahini Dijon Dressing. Keep in mind that not all Dijon tastes the same or have the same amount of salt content. For this dressing, use the Dijon you prefer to create the most appealing result.
