Sesame Orange Dipping Sauce
Thick, rich and creamy this dipping sauce was made to compliment winter nori roll but it goes well with crudités, use as a condiment or spread. It can double as a pesto too!
¼ cup raw sesame seeds
1 orange, peeled, seeded
1 garlic clove
1 tablespoon ginger
1 tablespoon coarse pepper berries
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, remove leaves from stem
¼ cup cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
Peel orange, separate segments, remove any seeds and put in blender or food processor. Add all remaining ingredients, except olive oil, and blend until incorporated. While blender is still running, slowly add olive oil, blending until thick and emulsified.
Serve immediately or chilled for later use. Stir before serving. This dip should keep in the refrigerator up to one week.
