This creamy, tangy dressing is perfect on a bed of greens and marries especially well with figs. With a few small tweaks, it also makes a great cucumber dip and a delicious sauce to accompany your raw falafel!
2 tablespoon tahini
2 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon dill
Simply mix ingredients together in a small bowl and serve as desired. (I like it drizzled over fresh greens and chopped figs, hence the photo above). For a richer dressing, add more tahini; for more sweetness, add extra honey; for a thinner dressing and a tangier taste, add more apple cider vinegar.
Turn this into a delicious cucumber dip by decreasing the vinegar slightly and adding more dill. Try sprinkling a little cayenne to offset the coolness of the cucumbers—yum!
For falafel sauce, add cumin for a bit of smokiness and salt to taste. It doesn’t taste quite like yogurt sauce but the tanginess and the Middle Eastern flavors lend it a surprising degree of authenticity.
[The ingredients I used: Artisana raw tahini, Really Raw honey, Spectrum Organics unfiltered apple cider vinegar, Simply Organic dried dill, Simply Organic cayenne, Simply Organic cumin, Celtic Sea Salt. Lucky you if you have access to fresh dill—I bet this recipe would be great that way!]
