Since I was a kid, I have always been a dressing-on-the-side type person. But this dressing is different. This is the mother of all dressings…
I first started using tahini as a dressing when I discovered it’s what gives hummus that lovely nutty flavour. To be honest, straight up tahini drizzled over a salad is pretty good in itself, but mixing it with lemon, garlic, cumin and a bit of black pepper takes it to a whole new level.
Tahini is sesame seed butter which means it’s packed full of phytosterols (which research suggests can help lower cholesterol) and rich in linoleic and oleic acids (also great for cholesterol and brain health).
It’s been used for centuries in Middle Eastern and I love it with falafel. It is:
Oh-so-simple to make
The perfect way to jazz up a dish
