Make the salad
  • Arrange the iceberg wedges on a serving platter. Dollop 1/2 teaspoon of the tahini onto each wedge and top with a cucumber slice and a small amount of enoki; secure the toppings with toothpicks. Drizzle some of the ranch dressing on the wedges and garnish with sunflower seeds and chile oil. Serve right away, with additional dressing and tahini.
