    1. 1
      Soak onion in salted cold water while preparing other ingredients, about 30 minutes.
    2. 2
      Whisk or blend together garlic, tahini and cumin, and add lemon juice; the mixture will become very thick.
    3. 3
      Thin with hot water, a tablespoon at a time, just so the mixture can be spooned.
    4. 4
      (It will thin further when tossed with tomatoes).
    5. 5
      Season to taste with salt and pepper.
    6. 6
      Toss onion, tomatoes and parsley with dressing.
    7. 7
      Taste, adjust the seasonings and serve over lettuce leaves.

      I used a red onion, 1 whole garlic clove, 3 very large tomatoes and skipped the lettuce. I put the garlic, tahini, cumin, parsley in the blender (Vita Mix) and added 1 tablespoon tomato juice from the fresh cut tomatoes instead of the hot water. I also used Heather's seasoning salt for the salt and pepper. At first I was worried to make this I thought the tahini would be to strong but I was wrong. It `s not eye appealing but it `s very good.

      Very good and easy to make -- a great way to use garden tomatoes and parsley. I admit I was a bit worried when the dressing was so thick that it was hard to stir -- but be careful not to add too much hot water to thin it out (step 3) because the tomatoes thin it out (step 4) making it a great accompaniant for barbecued pork chops. Thanks Chia for sharing!
