Zesty Tahini Oil-Free Dressing


zesty-tahini-oil-free-dressing

We have been trying a number of oil-free dressings lately and this one is definitely the best so far. It’s ridiculously simple, truly creamy, and just explodes with flavor. The recipe below makes enough for a few large salads but you may find yourself doubling it and using it every day (or is that just me?).

Try this and see if you don’t find yourself thinking about it all day…

1 clove garlic, crushed
4 scallions, diced
6 Tbsp sesame tahini
4 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
4 Tbsp lemon juice
4 Tbsp water
1/2 tsp salt
Fresh cracked black pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. You may need to add a little water to reach your desired consistency, keeping in mind it will thicken in the fridge.
