All the flavors of the Southwest in a salad. Topped with a creamy avocado cream dressing, this is the salad to make in the warmer weather months.
Homemade bread is not exactly predictable. Weather and the human touch are always liable to affect the end result. Home bakers produce not only the good, but the bad and the ugly, too. While a loaf of the bad is the unavoidable risk of making real artisan bread, the ugly and the good varieties of it may combine (as they do here) to give you the excellent … which is something a standardized commercial brand never can do.
I’m a big fan of tahini. Ever since I tried Annie’s Goddess Salad Dressing back in college, I’ve been hooked on it. Years later, I’ve finally gotten around to making my own tahini dressing! Tahini is roasted sesame puree—think the peanut butter of sesame seeds. It is often a key ingredient in hummus and many Mediterranean dishes.

Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira.
