Orange Sesame Creamy Dressing

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 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 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

Steps:

  • 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 🙂
