I’ve eating huge salads almost every night for dinner for months. I can’t get enough! Typically, I dress my salads simply with olive oil (organic, first cold pressed) that I massage into the greens (usually kale) and a few squeezes of lemon juice. But, on a recent road trip to Philadelphia (shout out to Phili!), I ate the most delicious kale salad from a Whole Foods cold bar. So good! I was sure to make a note of the ingredients so I could recreate the dish at home – and that I have, my friends; that I have.
Tahini Salad Dressing
2 TBSP tahini
1 TBSP tamari (low sodium)
1 TBSP lemon juice (juice of about half a lemon)
1-2 tsp apple cider vinegar (I use Braggs)
Add everything to a small blender cup (I use a Magic Bullet) and blend until well combined and smooth. If mixture is a bit too thick, thin it with some water. Start with a very small amount and work your way up. (My tahini is very runny, so I haven’t needed to add any water.)
Optional add: Nutritional yeast, garlic powder, onion powder, etc.
Assemble your favorite salad greens, add dressing to the greens, and massage dressing into greens until they are wilted. This works great with a sturdy green like kale. Add in your favorite salad mix-ins and toss together.
This amount of dressing makes enough to coat about 4 cups of salad greens, which, for me, is one serving 😉
