Tahini Dressing

Tahini Dressing | ChopChop


Tahini is an interesting ingredient. Even if you like sesame seeds, you may not like the taste of tahini all by itself; some people find its taste bitter while others find it nutty. But don’t let that stop you from making this tangy, creamy dressing. We eat it on salads all the time, but it’s also great drizzled on roasted vegetables, grilled chicken or beef, and beans.
