I hope you checked out our Blog post about the sesame seed (if not, you really should).
That tiny little seed sure is mighty with so many health benefits to offer. We thought with Spring underway and fresh salads being the perfect meal, we should share one of our favorite salad dressing recipes with you. That so happens to be made out of tahini. How perfect is that?!?
Prep time 15 mins
4- cups organic raw hulled white sesame seeds (sprouted if you can)
3-4 TBS Olive oil or Sunflower oil
TAHINI SALAD DRESSING BELOW
High powered blender such as Vitamix
Toast seeds lightly stirring constantly so they won’t burn.
Place in blender on high using the plunger to pack down over and over until a paste begins. Add the oil and continue blending on high until smooth and creamy. About 5 minutes total blend time.
Store in Fridge about a month.
Use in Salad Dressing, Babaganoush, Candy.
