The creaminess comes from tahini. So not only is this dressing delicious, but it is also nutritious as sesame seeds are an important source of omega 6 fatty acids, as well as calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc which all play an important role in bone mineralization and red blood cell production, to name a few.
High in “good” fat and protein, sesame seeds are a great addition to any diet, especially a vegetarian one 🙂
- 1/4 cup raw tahini
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
- zet of 1/2 an orange
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 TBS sesame oil
- 1 TBS red wine vinegar
- Put everything in blender and blend until well combined
- Store in an airtight container in the fridge. It will thicken a bit in the fridge, which I think is a good thing.
I used this dressing on a roasted vegetables and raw kale salad, and it tasted perfect 🙂
