As of late, I’ve been leaning towards more savory dressings, as opposed to sour vinegar-based ones. I guess after so many years of thriving on vinegar, my body has finally said ‘no mas’.
My latest creation, was just that – Savory. And while it’s not the most innovative, I found that my altered ratios and added ingredients really kicked it up a notch! As opposed, to most tahini/lemon dressings.
Furthermore, it’s thick enough to be used as a slaw dressing, a salad dressing, or even a dip. Basically, 3 for the price of 1. Love.
Creamy Tahini Dressing
.5 C tahini
3 T water
3 T apple cider vinegar
2 T tamari
2 T lemon juice
1 T olive oil
1 T miso
.75 tsp fresh ground chili paste
1 clove garlic
Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth.
*In the photo above, I dressed one head of red cabbage, one head of chopped cauliflower and topped with sesame seeds.
Better than food though, was spending time with my best friend, Ashley, last Thursday night! Not only was I stoked to hang out, but also to peruse Mass Street (downtown Lawrence, KS – where Ashley lives). Every time I’m on Mass, I always have many flashbacks of my freshman year of college – Ohhh, sheer craziness!
The Lawrence I remember though (beer, fake ID’s, North Face Fleeces) is NOT the Lawrence I experienced last week. Holy freaking crap. I’m still trying to decide if it has changed since I last lived there, or if I just appreciate the Bohemian/diverse vibe a lot more now. Hmmm, maybe a bit of both? Either way, I was blown away. The food, the people, the West Village (NY) like bars, etc, etc, etc… All of it, was superb.
Basically Lawrence, I heart you. (And you too, Ashley!)
Now, I’m off to fill some cookie orders! The general response I’ve receive so far, has been wonderful. And, I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate all of the fabulous feedback (and orders!)… I Freaking love y’all!
