Recipe For Yoghurt And Tahini Dressing

I have decided to start getting creative in the kitchen with salad dressing recipes. I made cucumber and feta salads during the summer months to go with what we were cooking on the barbecue. I would ordinarily serve this with my standard salad dressing which I always have in the fridge, and elevate the flavours with a bit of fresh mint, straight from the garden. However, in my attempt to change things up a bit with new salad dressings, I decided to make one using yoghurt and tahini. Tahini is another ingredient I always have in my pantry as I much prefer to make my own hummus than buy it. This salad dressing is quite versatile and it will work perfectly on some boiled potatoes as well.

  6. Great idea to put a bit of cumin in it. I love a touch of cumin although too much can be overwhelming 🙂

    1. There is a fine balance between too much and not enough when it comes to cumin, and I don’t always get it right 🙂

  7. I LIKE this salad dressing. In winter I go for soup and in the summer I can’t stay away from salads. I think I could take this dressing for a test drive even in the winter.

  18. I love salads and I’m always looking for a healthier way to add dressing. Not only is this healthy but it looks absolutly delicious and this is a guy talking. As you know most guys are thinking steak and potatoes. Like most guys, I’ll pass this on to my wife to make if for me. 🙂
