Chicken Taratur Salad

Chicken Taratur Salad

Taratur, or tarator, is one of the simplest dressings imaginable. This salad is a great way to use up leftover roast or even boiled chicken. You can use white sesame seeds, but black sesame seeds make a prettier garnish.


  • 1 large bunch arugula
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
  • 1 cup taratur (see recipe)
  • 4 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 small red onion, sliced into rounds
  • Cherry tomatoes and lemon slices for garnish


  1. 1

    Wash the arugula and place on a plate.

  2. 2

    Place chicken in a bowl with ¾ cup taratur. Stir well and place on top of the arugala.

  3. 3

    Thin the remaining taratur with a little water to make it creamy. Coat the chicken with the creamy taratur. Garnish with sesame seeds, onion rings, tomatoes, and lemon.
