Ingredients

Falafel Salad

  • ¼ cup red onion (finely chopped)
  • 4 cups arugula (or spinach)
  • 6 radishes (finely chopped)
  • 1 ½ cups cucumber (sliced into rounds)
  • 1 cup carrot (shredded)
  • pita bread (optional; do not cut until just before serving)
  • green onion (optional; best added fresh)

Instructions

  • Cook the falafels and shake up the tahini dressing according to directions on those recipes. Note that falafels require an overnight soak of chickpeas.
  • Toss together all ingredients and serve immediately.

For meal prep

  • Arrange in meal prep containers so that the falafels and tahini dressing do not come in contact with salad ingredients until just before serving. Try to keep the cucumbers away from the leafy greens as well.
  • Store in the fridge for up to 4 days. Toss everything up just before serving.

Notes

Fresh mint is SO good in this recipe but does not keep for meal prep. 
Breaking up the falafels into 'croutons' is great!
