Take Back the Kitchen: Alma's Tahini Salad Dressing
I've been doing a lot of food shopping in Paterson, NJ lately because of their wonderful Middle Eastern stores. One of my favorite reasonably priced items to get there is tahini. I stocked up on it and have been making loads of hummus, tahini cookies and the following salad dressing that I replicated from memory, as best I could, from my friend's dressing at our book club years ago. I hope you like it!
Tahini Salad Dressing:
1/3 cup tahini sauce
1/3 cup plus 3 tbsp water
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 small garlic clove, peeled
2 tsp maple syrup, agave or honey
1/2 tsp dried thyme
2 pinches Kosher salt
In a blender or with a fork, mix all the ingredients until fully combined and refrigerate.
Serve with vegetables, rice, falafel or anything you like!
