Chicken Shawarma Salad

Chicken Shawarma Saladwith Lemon-Honey Dressing and Creamy Tahini

We can never resist the flavors of shawarma, the Middle Eastern version of a gyro. Here, we've taken it out of the pita and tossed it into a big, crunchy salad. Juicy chicken is marinated with lemon, paprika, turmeric, cayenne, and cumin, then pan-seared and mixed with crisp vegetables, refreshing herbs, and a tangy honey-lemon dressing. Drizzled with our favorite nutty tahini sauce, it's the perfect hearty bowl to spice up your week.
