Falafel Salad

This is a deconstructed falafel sandwich. It is a lot easier to eat and very satisfying even for dinner.


Ready made falafel or dry mix that can be prepared via fry/bake.
Pita bread/Pita chips

Serves: 4

1 large cucumber
2 tomato
2-3 carrots
2 bags of mixed greens 

1 1/4 cup of plain yogurt
1 1/2 garlic cloves
1/2 tbsp dried parsley (optional)
1/2 tbsp of tahini
1 can of chick peas
salt to taste
1 tbsp of olive oil

For the sauce blend the ingredients together, add some water for a consistency similar to salad dressing. You can buy ready made falafel from the freezer section or the dry mix that you add water to and fry/bake. The pita bread can be toasted or warmed. You can also use pita chips to give the crouton effect. Finally, I like to add some chinese chili garlic sauce for an added kick.
