Since I first shared this recipe, it’s been one of my favorites. For years, I’ve been making this salad (or versions of this salad) on a monthly, if not weekly, basis. What’s not to love? It’s comforting thanks to the roasted potatoes. It has a nice crunch from the chickpeas and a delicious creamy tahini dressing. It’s certainly my go-to winter salad thanks to the combination of warm and cold ingredients, but I love it all year long.

How to Make a Roasted Potato and Chickpea Salad:

Start by roasting the potatoes and chickpeas with a bit of oil and salt. While these ingredients are roasting, prepare the tahini dressing. All you need to do is mix tahini, white wine vinegar, water and garlic. When the potatoes and chickpeas are done roasting, just throw them in a bowl with your greens of choice and the dressing. I also love to add a sprinkle of nutritional yeast. That’s it!

Ingredient Substitutions:

  • Use your favorite roasting potatoes. I love to use mini potatoes and cut them in half. For larger potatoes, cut them into thin slices, cubes or fries.
  • You can make this recipe with sweet potatoes if preferred.
  • Fee free to add extra toppings, such as seeds, sprouts and/or shredded carrots.
  • You can take the tahini dressing to the next level by adding a small amount of maple and Dijon mustard to taste.
