Tahini Dressing

I wanted a change from our usual apple cider vinegar salad dressing. This tahini dressing is what my husband suggested after finding it on the Food Babe website. Wow, what a success! It's so tasty, I love it. I could eat it with a spoon. Sesame seeds are possibly the oldest condiment known to man. I love the nutty flavour and it's such a great source of minerals like calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper, manganese and selenium.

  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup raw tahini
