Creamy Tahini Salad Dressing

Creamy dressings often are full of dairy but this vegan Creamy Tahini Salad Dressing recipe is delicious and super easy to make! This dressing is packed with protein from the nutritious tahini. It is for sure one of my favourite salad dressings.

Tahini is one of the main ingredients in this miso sauce. The more I learn about sesame seeds, the more I want to share it with other people. I’m an enthusiastic eater of all sorts of seeds, but sesame seeds in the form of tahini and oil are favourites of mine. Kevala Organic Tahini is a very good tahini.

Lemons’ health benefits are immense.  To begin they are acidic to the taste but are alkaline-forming in the body. In fact, they are one of the most alkaline-forming superfoods; this makes them great for balancing a highly acidic condition in the body. Also, they are full of many health benefits.

As I don’t use sugar for my cooking I often use stevia which is the healthy option.  The stevia plant is incredibly sweet and also incredibly good for you. The leaf is 30 times sweeter than sugar while extracts are 300-400 times sweeter. So all you need in this olive oil lemon juice salad dressing is a few drops. The best stevia will, therefore, be the one that retains some whole food value and is water-based.  Liquid forms will be less processed.  Go here to learn How to Get the Best Stevia Without the Bitterness.

It is properly known as Bragg Liquid Aminos is a Certified NON-GMO liquid protein concentrate, derived from healthy soybeans. Bragg Liquid Aminos are made from health-giving, NON-GMO soybeans and purified water. They are an excellent, healthy, gourmet replacement for Tamari and Soy Sauce. Not fermented or heated and Gluten-Free. Bragg’s has a small amount of naturally occurring sodium. No table salt is added. If less sodium is desired, use a 6 oz. Bragg’s spray bottle and dilute with 1/3 distilled water or to taste and then either add in or spray on food.
