The key to a good salad is getting the right salad dressing. This Tahini Garlic Lemon Salad Dressing is perfect flavor combination. Tahini is best known for it’s role in making hummus. Made from blended sesame seeds (similar to peanut butter being made from peanuts), it provides a nutty, savory essence. This being paired with the acid from lemon + the warmth from garlic makes a divine zing to top the most basic salad.
