Garlic, Lemon & Tahini Dressing
An easy condiment worth keeping in the fridge. Friendly to many food restrictions, and simple to adjust for others. Keep a bottle in your fridge and you'll find all kinds of uses for it.
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic smashed
- 1 cup tahini
- 2 tsp lemon zest
- 1/3 cup lemon juice fresh squeezed
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 2 tbsp coconut aminos
- 1 tsp black pepper ground
- 1/3 cup honey or agave nectar
- 1 tsp salt or to taste
- 1/3 cup water or more until desired consistency is reached
In a pan on the stove over low heat, add the olive oil and garlic cloves. Warm the oil slightly, taking care not to cook the garlic. You're just drawing some of the flavors out into the oil. Once you start to see bubbles around the garlic, turn the heat off and set the pan aside to allow the oil to cool.
In a bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients. Once the oil is cool, whisk it into the dressing. Store in fridge for up to a month, though I doubt it will last that long.
