Creamy Tahini Sauce/Salad Dressing

Total Time
Prep 5 mins

This is a nice and rich tahini-based salad dressing that goes great with romaine and butter lettuces, and also makes a nice garnish for falafels, veggie burgers, chickpea salads, and tons of other great vegetarian and/or Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes. Serve with pita breads as a snack or appetizer. I used packaged tahini paste that I bought from a gourmet foods store that happened to be really good, but you can probably make your own too. NOTE: the lemon juice amounts shown are correct! It is 1/4 liquid cup plus an extra tablespoon. Also, you can add 1/4 tsp sugar if you find it too rough.

Yes creamy. This would be good for a veggie dip. Made for Feb Sun and Spice.
