Tahini Egg Salad Recipe

August 22nd, 2016

Classic egg salad is usually doused in mayo, but here’s a version that’s creamy with an unexpected nutty undertone, thanks to tahini. Its sesame flavor pairs beautifully with eggs. A rainbow mix of avocados, roma tomatoes, and radishes adds freshness and dynamic texture. Toss it all together for a quick, energizing lunch that’s rich in protein and healthy fats.
