It’s salad season. Here’s my go-to salad dressing. It’s fast and easy to make, nutritious, and super delicious. It’s also extremely versatile: you can use it as a dressing or use less water and put it on chicken, rice, sandwiches, or wherever else you might try a sauce or spread.
Throw the following into a blender or hand mixer
- ¼ cup Braggs (or tamari)
- ½ cup tahini
- 2 Tbs rice vinegar
- 2 Tbs oil (I typically use olive)
- 1 small dried chili pepper, cut into smaller pieces (remove seeds if you want to reduce the spice level)
- 1 tsp sweetener (I use honey; you can use stevia, but use a lot less than 1 tsp if you do)
- ~½ cup water (for dressing; use less for sauce/spread)
Blend on high for about 30 seconds.
This lasts for about a week in the fridge. It will thicken and settle, so you may need to add more water and shake it before each use. I store it in a small Mason jar to keep this simple.
