Tahini Salad Dressing

I came up with this the other night and it was really good!  The tahini, or sesame seed paste, has carbs, but provides a delicate, nutty flavor and lots of nutrients so I think 1 carb is worth it.  You can buy tahini at most import groceries or someplace like Whole Foods.  I found it at an HEB Central Market even.  It always separates when undisturbed, so stir well to reincorporate the oil with the ground sesame seeds before using.   It is very stiff on the bottom of the can, so work those muscles to blend well.  I like to make dressing fresh for salads, so this is only enough for about 7 servings.  Tahini does not have to be refrigerated after opening, nor does this dressing when mixed up.  Induction friendly.


3 T. red wine vinegar

1 T. balsamic vinegar

2 T. tahini (sesame seed paste)

1/2 c. olive oil

1 clove minced garlic

Dash each salt and black pepper

1/4 tsp. oregano

DIRECTIONS: Mix all ingredients in empty jar or bottle and shake well.  The dressing will separate quickly, so shake right before adding to fresh tossed salad.
