12 Light Dinners for a Summer Night

As the summer temperatures soar, our appetites tend to lean towards something a little lighter. That's where these 12 recipes come in! From salads to noodle bowls, each dish celebrates an assortment of seasonal fruits and veggies with the creamy goodness and versatility of Soom Tahini. Enjoy these dinners while relaxing on the patio, chillin’ in the AC, or in the company of friends and family. 



Crispy Fish Tacos with Tahini Avocado Crema

This is such a fun recipe for a Friday night! Beer-battered, and pan-fried Crispy Fish Tacos are the way to go. Don't skimp on the Tahini Avocado Crema, packed with bright citrus flavor! Safe to say these tacos taste even better when you're sitting outside enjoying a nice cold beverage.

Summer Squash Pasta Salad

 This Summer Squash Pasta Salad will have everyone begging for a second bowl! Charred zucchini, corn, and scallions create the tastiest medley of smokey caramelized flavor. The creamy Lemon Tahini Vinaigrette hits all the notes with a bit of punchy spice, touch of sweetness, and overall rich nutty flavor. Top it all off with fresh basil from the garden. It's Diana, our Brand Manager's, favorite recipe!

Tahini Chimichurri Steak Salad

Bet ya never thought about adding tahini to a chimichurri before? We highly recommend it! The chimichurri is bright, fresh, and herby, with a subtle richness from tahini. Let the steak marinade in the chimichurri for at least 2 hours and then top with a dollop while serving to enjoy its maximum flavor! 

Sheet-Pan Salmon with Green Beans, Potatoes, Olives, and Spicy Tahini

This recipe comes from Jess Damuck’s cookbook,Health Nut, and we think it would be great to share at a dinner party! After roasting on a sheet pan, drizzle over a generous amount of the Spicy Tahini sauce made from cilantro and jalapeños.

10-Minute Cold Sesame Noodles with Pickled Cucumbers

Our Marketing Director, Julie, created this recipe and it’s one of our favorite summery go-to meals! The sesame sauce has that craveable umami flavor with a little zing and coats the udon noodles so lusciously. 

Peach & Halloumi Arugula Salad with Tahini Pesto Dressing

Ripe, juicy peaches and tomatoes add a balance of light sweetness to the nutty arugula salad and Tahini Pesto Dressing. Highlighting all the best summer produce! The crispy, pan-fried halloumi adds a little saltiness to each bite for a salad that is super light but boasting rich flavors. 

Mediterranean Turkey Burger Bowls

Turn your turkey burger into salad! We packed this burger with all the best Mediterranean flavors like feta, sun-dried tomatoes, and a little tahini of course. Build your salad bowl with a dollop of hummus, olives, and artichoke hearts on top of a bed of leafy greens.
