Lemon Tahini Dressing


This creamy and tangy dressing contains only lemon juice, tahini, water and salt and can be made in just a minute or two. I make a large batch every week during the summer to have with lamb kofta, lemon rosemary grilled chicken, and on lunchtime salads created from reinvented leftovers. I also use this lemon tahini dressing in a quick-to-assemble chickpea salad loaded with bell peppers and parsley.

Recipe makes 1.5 cups salad dressing.
