I've been obsessed with Tahini lately. Tahini cravings have been hitting me like lightening ever since I devoured this salad. So today I came home from the Farmer's Market at Union Square and whipped up this Two-Minute Tahini Apple Salad. It is delicious and healthy. Rich in fiber, potassium, vitamins, protein and healthy fats. Give it a try when you need a delicious fall bite in a snap! My recipe and a few NYC videos...

It has been beautiful here in NYC this week! Up to 64 degrees today. I was sweating wearing a simple light sweater and boots as I walked home from the Greenmarket. A Union Square Greenmarket visit is my favorite thing to do on a sunny Monday.
Plus Union Square had all the holiday booths set up. Everything from Christmas cookies to jewelery and fashion were on display. I love to do some of my holiday gift shopping from the NYC small business vendors, designers and cooks. I love this time of year in the city.
Just for fun I took 2 quickie videos as I strolled. They are shaky, but it gives you a little hint of NYC this time of year...
I found these stunning (and huge) Honeycrisp apples at the market..
..and simply had to do something with them for lunch. So, voila! This is a super fast recipe I'll be making for a quick lunch or even brunch.
Tips: Add in some curry powder or cayenne if you want it spicy! Add in some dried fruit for an extra sweet/chewy accent. And don't skimp on the quality of your apple - choose an awesome crisp, seasonal apple to be the salad star of this lunchtime show..
