All-Purpose Tahini Dressing

All-Purpose Tahini Dressing


Serves 3 (serving size: 2 tbsp.)

Tahini is made from toasted ground hulled sesame seeds, which are especially rich in cholesterol-lowering phytosterols. Rich and nutty, we look to this pantry staple to add savory depth and sumptuous creaminess to salads and grains. Look for tahini that is well blended (little to no separation) and make sure to give it a good stir before using. If the dressing thickens up too much after being refrigerated, mix in an extra teaspoon of water.
