I’m not a huge fan of salad dressing… I’ll usually just use a really good balsamic vinegar with a touch of olive oil but this is such a delicious one that I had to share it with you. A nice departure from normal dressings, this one had a really savory and nutty taste that pairs incredibly with the crispness of a salad. The base for it is Tahini paste, which is essentially just ground up sesame seeds with a little bit of oil. You can probably find this at your grocery store, but I always just make it myself because it saves a lot of money and it’s so easy to do. You can use the tahini paste for a lot of things (put it on toast, eat it like hummus, etc) but with the addition of a few more ingredients this gets transformed into an even more versatile dressing. I love it with the chickpea falafels from THIS POST, on top of a piece of salmon with lemon slices, in place of the goat cheese in the Mediterranean Grain Salad from THIS POST… the possibilities are endless!
