I must admit that salad dressing is my big “frustration” with this program. I have come up with one salad dressing that I really do like … it’s “creamy” and just “rich” enough to satisfy, plus it’s a welcome change from vinegar.

for 1 serving:

1 heaping teaspoon of Tahini
the juice from 1/2 of a fresh lemon

– with a spoon or fork, stir together until mixture becomes “creamy” and thick.

– then add 2 to 3 tablespoons of fresh garden herbs that are finely chopped. I generally use fresh parsely, chives, fennel (yum, yum!), and 1/2 to 1 clove of garlic. Stir this into the thick tahini/lemon mixture. It should be a paste-like consistency.

– then slowly add cold water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until you have the consistency you desire (I generally add approx. 4 to 5 teaspoons of water).

– now you’re ready to pour your dressing over a lovely fresh salad and enjoy.
