Raw Tahini Dressing (Oil Free)

From Natalia Rose's "Raw Food Detox Diet."

At times we all struggle to make ourselves eat raw salad. Cold.

I make this oil free dressing when I feel like I need something that feels warm.

By far, it's one of my favorites! Yesterday I spread it on mixed greens, organic chopped zuchinni and shredded carrots with chopped tomatoes. YUM!

It is comforting, creamy, and very healthy. So delicious on salads, it can also be used as a veggie dip or a spread in a panini sandwich or bean burrito. Enjoy!


Makes about 4 cups

1 cup raw tahini
¼ teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon coriander
3 tablespoons apple juice concentrate
l clove giarlic
2 tablespoons Nama Shoyu soy sauce (or Bragg’s Liquid Aminos)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 stevia packet (if more sweetness is desired)
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
½ cup water

Blend all ingredients except water in a blender until smooth.

This mixture thickens in the refrigerator. Add the water to dilute before serving.

Tahini is finely ground sesame seeds, and can be found at any health food store in a jar in the condiments section. However, I have also found it in the wet bulk foods section at Whole Foods Market. It doesnt have to be raw.
