Tahini Lemon Dressing Recipe


Tahini Lemon Dressing is such a tasty salad dressing that can be paired with almost any kind of fresh salad.  It is zesty and creamy. It always give your salad a taste that is not common to other salad dressings. It may taste exquisite but making one is easy.

When I was young, I always thought that salad dressings are always ready made. For me, they usually come in jars or bottles. I guess, most of us thought that way when were young, right? That is until we are proven wrong when grow old. I always wonder how come these dressings taste fresh if they come in jars or bottles.

That question however was answered when I got old, and learned quite a few things in the kitchen. As I started preparing food for myself, I learned that salad dressings taste better if they are made fresh. Yes, you can purchase them in jars and bottles, but the taste won’t compare with a freshly made one.

Especially, the Tahini Lemon Dressing, it tastes loads better when it’s fresh.  It’s actually my favourite salad dressing, since it is healthy and tasty at the same time. It can be sweet and tangy , and you can adjust it according to your taste.
