Hello August, that means cooling fall temps and turning leaves are getting closer! And fireplace cuddly time which Miko is all about.
But since temps are still hot, I’m still celebrating summer with vibrant salads and fun blender salad dressings. Trust me, you’ll want to make this one. It’s tangy, creamy, slightly sweet, and has a playful sriracha kick. Blending banana with tahini gave it a deceivingly decadent texture – you’d never guess it wasn’t loaded with oil and cream. It also packs raw garlic, ginger, and apple cider vinegar which might make it the perfect dressing.
Spicy Tahini Recipe
- Banana, peeled and chopped
- 2 tbsp. raw tahini
- ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 tbsp. miso paste
- 1-2 cloves raw garlic
- ½” chunk of raw ginger
- 2 tsp. sriracha
- ½ cup water, as needed
- pepper to taste
Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend to a smooth and creamy texture. Serve and enjoy! Makes 2-4 servings.
I used a very thick raw tahini that added to the creamy texture.
It coated a vibrant salad with black beans, green onions, and chopped apple for a fun blend.
The dressing is bright, creamy, sweet, and has a lively tartness from the garlic and vinegar. Perfect.
It will make a meal salad a satisfying treat.
