I’ve officially completed my second hot vinyasa yoga class at Zuda Yoga thanks to ClassPass and I’m starting to really like it and get the hang of it, I’m tempted to work up to an advance level if I can fit the classes in with my current gym/work schedule. There is something very therapeutic and relaxing about it even though it’s a pretty extreme muscle and stretching workout, it helps me focus and calm my mind more while blasting muscle, focusing on breathing, and working on flexibility. I’m not doing headstands yet and probably not for a long time, but who knows down the road.
Salads are also therapeutic to me offering a hearty, nutrient dense meal that’s just all around healthy, filling, and flavorful – many wins in a meal. And why they’re my favorite meal to feature on this site. My mom likes to remind me that she gets tired of salad and I like to remind her that’s impossible with so many dressing and ingredient options! Don’t get tired of salad, get creative and have fun knowing you’re doing something good for yourself.
This dressing is a fun salad option because it has a unique sweet and spicy party going on with raisins, curry powder, tahini, garlic, and basil – a blend that brings strong flavor with a creamy texture.
Sweet Curry Tahini Dressing
- 1/4 cup raisins
- 1/4 cup tahini
- 1 carrot, chopped
- 1 tbsp. curry powder
- 1 clove of garlic
- 2 tbsp. tamari (or soy sauce)
- 2 tsp. dried basil
- 1/4 cup of water
Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend to a smooth and creamy texture. Serve and enjoy! Makes 4 servings.
The color and texture is appealing, like a creamy and gooey dipping sauce. And it could be a great dipping sauce for veggies too.
But it can also coat a large, 4 serving salad with a tangy, sweet, and rich curry kick.
I added my slow cooked heirloom beans from the weekend to make this a hearty meal salad.
And it was very filling with a wonderfully strong sweet and tangy curry flavor. This dressing has a stronger flavor, but works well to jazz up a weeknight salad.
Poor Miko didn’t understand why I wouldn’t share my salad with him.
