Peach and red pepper salad marinated in a Tahini dressing

When I told my girlfriend about this dressing she looked at me and told me that I probably would be eating alone. When the food was served she ate a lot and really loved it.
That happens to me quite often.
This dressing is special as the Tahini as well as the cumin are not very common ingredients with salads. The combination of the fruit and the vegetable gives the dish a very fresh touch.

Preparation time: 20 minutes
Easy recipe


  • 4 red peppers
  • 3 very ripe peaches
  • juice of half a lemon
  • tea spoon of tahini paste
  • half a tea spoon of cumin
  • a pinch of brown sugar, salt, pepper
  • some olive oil


Put the peppers into the pre heated oven (200 degrees centigrade) for 20 minutes until the skin bubbles.
Meanwhile squeeze the lemon juice into a bowl. Add the salt, pepper, sugar, tahini and cumin and mix all well. Once dissolved add the olive oil.
Peel the peaches and chop them into a salad bowl.
Now take the peppers out of the oven and let them cool down for a few minutes. Collect the juices and put them into the dressing you have prepared.
Skin the peppers and dice them. Put them into the salad bowl and add the dressing. Mix well and let sit to marinate for a bit.

  2. This is a very interesting dish! I actually just bought a fresh jar of tahini at the store today, and I’ll definitely have to try it out with some fresh fruit – never thought of that before.

  3. An interesting salad! I love tahini!



  4. I love tahini sauce and I am sure I would love this salad. I suppose you use florinis peppers as I see the word paprika in the German title.
