The rain is back and we’re trying to be thankful for it here, but poor Leela has the blues about being stuck inside.
Miko keeps his toy close so he’s always ready for an indoor play session.
And it is tough to wear him out!
Making this simple lemon tahini dressing will not wear you out. I decided I haven’t been enjoying enough lemons lately and ambitiously bought a bag from Costco. Now I need to use up lots which is fine with me with so many great dressing possibilities. This is a traditional tangy lemon tahini dressing with miso paste and Dijon mustard for a fun savory twist.
Super Lemony Tahini Dressing
- 1 clove of garlic
- 1 tsp. miso paste
- Juice of one lemon
- 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
- ¼ cup tahini
- ¼ cup water as needed
Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend to a smooth and creamy texture. Serve and enjoy. Makes 4 servings.
The texture is perfect – creamy and rich for coating, but not too heavy.
I tossed in sauteed onions and yellow zucchini with kidney beans for a hearty meal salad.
The dressing worked perfectly with a nicely tangy lemon flavor that was not too tart or bitter.
Now I’ve got about 15 more lemons to use up!
