This hearty, healthy salad is loaded with nutrition and vibrant Mediterranean flavours! For added crunch, top with pita chips (store bought or homemade)
Place all of the ingredients in a blender or a small food processor and blend until smooth. Season with additional salt if needed and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Mix the falafel mix according to the manufacturers directions or follow the directions below for Quick Falafels and set aside (they typically need to sit for at least 10 minutes before cooking for the packaged ones).
Prepare the falafels in 1 tablespoon portions, as per the directions. Cook over medium heat in oil (or air fry) in batches and set on a platter lined with paper towel until they are all cooked.
To assemble the salad, place the cooked falafels on top of the prepared salad and drizzle with the Lemon Garlic Tahini Dressing and a dollop of Tzatziki (if using) on each serving. You may drizzle a bit of extra olive oil on top of the salad which is a nice touch!
Pita Chips: If you wish to add pita chips, preheat the oven to 400 F, line a baking sheet with parchment paper, brush pitas with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake the pitas for about 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown, remove from the oven and set aside to cool slightly before cutting into wedges.
