How to make tahini salad dressing

Your rating: None
This creamy and delicious salad dressing is based on tahini, a nutritious paste made from ground sesame seeds. It can be put together in a few minutes and is a healthier & cheaper alternative to commercial dressings.
What you'll need: 
2 tablespoons tahini
1 tablespoon soy sauce, regular or reduced salt
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 small clove garlic, minced
Water for thinning
Measure tahini, soy sauce, lemon juice and garlic into a small bowl and stir well until smooth and creamy.
Thin with water until dressing is at desired consistency.
Store any leftover dressing in the refrigerator and use within a few days.
Makes about 1/3 cup dressing.
Tahini can be found in the ethnic section of most supermarkets, or in health shops.
1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger can be substituted for the garlic.
Rice vinegar (or another mild vinegar) can be substituted for the lemon juice.
For a richer dressing, substitute some or all of the water with oil. This is especially nice with flavoured oil such as sundried tomato.
