Tahini dressing is a classic staple in raw food cuisine for good reason. It as a very distinctive yet versatile flavor and is richly satisfying. Also, it goes very well with pretty much any vegetable mix under the sun. This recipe has a very nice balance of different tastes: sweet from raw honey, acidic from apple cider vinegar, creamy richness from tahini, saltiness and depth from shoyu, and spice and flavor from chives and garlic. And a nice mellow dose of fresh cucumber. Traditionally tahini is made by grinding sesame seeds into a thick butter. You can either make the tahini yourself by using a blender or food processor to blend the sesame seeds until smooth (which can take time and patience and you may need to add some additional sesame oil) or you can purchase pre-made raw tahini in jars. Having some good salad dressings around is a great help when it comes to success on a healthy diet! This recipe was an experiment by Chef Hannah Mendenhall and she encourages you to play around with ingredients and make it your own!

Salad may seem like a boring option for a meal, but we assure you it doesn't have to be. The magic is all in the combination of flavors, and of course in the dressing. A great dressing can transform a salad from drab to fab. We love this easy recipe, and the dressing has the perfect combination of creaminess from tahini, acid and tart from the lemon, as well as added sweetness from orange, coconut water and dates. And don't forget that spicy kick from ginger! It comes out thick, more like a sauce, which will make your salad a bit more filling and satisfying.
