Spicy Tahini Summer Dressing
This Tahini dressing is delicious as dip or as dressing! For a while, I ate it every night on a huge salad of a head or two of romaine with cilantro and italian parsley mixed in with a peeled cucumber and a chopped red pepper. The sunflower seeds mixed in with the dressing make sure the nuts don’t all fall to the bottom of the bowl!
1½ clove Garlic, chopped or garlic pressed
2 tablespoon Raw Tahini
2 pinch Sea Salt
1 dash Cayenne Pepper
2 tablespoon Cold-Pressed EVOO
1 tablespoon Water
Mix all ingredients together and stir until somewhat smooth. I like mine extra citrusy and garlicky, so I add more of the lemons (sometimes adding a lime instead) and the garlic.
**If you like added sweetness, try adding a tablespoon or two of raw honey, agave or stevia. Feeling salty? Try adding some Nama Shoyu!
