Okay let’s be real for a minute here. Salads are not exactly the most exciting things in the world. If you make a “salad” with just leaves and some awful store-bought dressing it will be probably the least satisfying meal ever. SO. Lets re-define a salad.

A salad can be a meal or a side. In this recipe, it’s a side dish. When you make a salad as a meal you need to add the following things: protein, carbs, veggies, and yummies. That’s right, yummies. LOL. Yummies are what I like to call the salad toppers, such as: cheese, nuts, seeds, dried fruits, and all that good stuff. For example, I used feta cheese as my yummy of choice in this Watermelon Salad Recipe.

Now that THAT is out of the way…I bring you my Yogurt Tahini Dressing!!! This dressing takes a boring side salad and makes it fab.

What’s in it:

  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • ¼ cup hot water
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ½ cup greek yogurt (0% is best)
  • juice of a whole lemon
  • ½ tsp coarse sea salt
  • ¼ tsp fresh ground pepper

Whisk tahini and hot water together. Whisk in rest of ingredients. DONE! This will keep in fridge for up to a week.

My Yogurt Tahini Dressing goes best with iceberg lettuce, romaine lettuce, thin sliced purple onion, tomatoes, and of course yummies. You cant forget the yummies (just sliced almonds here.) Let me now how you like the dressing, and comment below with what you used your Yogurt Tahini Dressing on! 🙂
