If you have never tasted these lovely seeds, go out and find them. Don’t be fooled and buy black sesame seeds, get the real stuff. Ironically, I learned about this lovely seed through THE Nigella, but there is no real connection there, just that I really like both of them.
They are very aromatic and they make any simple salad or dip sing with flavor.
Lemon & Nigella seed salad
- 1 quarter iceberg lettuce, in fine slivers
- 1 tomato, diced
- 1 red onion, in thin slivers
- Juice of half a lemon
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- Pepper & Salt to taste
- 1 tbsp of nigella seeds
This salad combines very well with a Greek stew.
Add some chicken to make this a lunch salad.
