I love salads but I get burned out on them. So every once in awhile I come across a new salad dressing and figure I might as well give it a try. Always make your own salad dressing, its so easy and much more delicious. This salad dressing is from Alicia Silverstone’s Book, “The Kind Diet”
Tahini Dressing
Makes about 1 cup
1/2 cup tahini
juice from 1 1/4 lemons
1-2 teaspoons shoyu
1/4 garlic clove, to taste
1 teaspoon umeboshi vinegar
Combine the tahini, lemon juice, shoyu, garlic, vinegar and 1/2 to 3/4 cup of water in a blender. Puree until very well combined. Refrigerate in a tightly sealed jar. This will keep for about 4 days. You can add basil, cilantro, parsely, and miso for variation, but if you add herbs, the dressing will only last for 2 days.
Remember the kale from yesterday? This dressing would be great on it!
