While watching Yotam Ottolenghi on TV I was reminded of the tahini I had in my pantry. I came up with the idea to make a tahini salad dressing and I was very pleased with the result. These flavours worked perfectly in my cous cous salad. To it I added the left over pickled carrots from my chicken ballotine dish.
Head straight on to the Recipe For Tahini Salad Dressing ♥
In my opinion, there was only one error made during the transition of our country. The government in charge at the time should have sold off all the parastatals. None of them seem to be making money. Eskom who are responsible for our electrical supply are amongst the worst. They have increased their staff quota by 50% and yet only increased output by 6%. Maintenance has not been kept up-to-date, which is only part of the problem. Our most recent issue is the lack of coal. This is a two prong problem. The first being strikes for a 15% wage increase by the staff which Eskom cannot afford. And the second issue is related to service delivery protests. Local communities are barricading the roads, preventing coal being delivered to the places it is needed. So, we are back to load shedding.

The period scheduled without electricity is 2 and a half hours. Which is not fun when you are sitting in the dark at home in the middle of winter. After the first night Dave and I went to buy a UPS so that we can have some light. We have 4 lights connected to this system. We also have a gas burner in the kitchen for cooking, and a gas heater. Now I have to think about meals in advance so that we can do one pot cooking. I have a cup of coffee every afternoon and boiled extra water to make a cous cous salad. Wanting a new flavour profile, I made this tahini salad dressing. The best thing is that you can serve it with any protein, and the flavours improve the longer it stands.

I have some tahini in the fridge and this would be the perfect way to use it.
Hope you enjoy it!
Lovely. I can see this dressing on grain, bean, and pasta salads!
It is so versatile 🙂
I’ve got to try this! I can never use up my tahini quickly enough! 🙂
I wonder how your caramels would taste if you used tahini?
I love the coriander in here! Always looking for ways to use it. I’ll admit, all too often, I wimp out and buy salad dressing. And the additives! It’s disgusting what they put in there, so unhealthy.
I only buy if we are travelling.
I can’t wait to try this dressing. Feeling for you though and hope SAF problems get solved soon. It is such an awesome country.
Thank you Abbe 🙂
yum, what a tasty dressing! i normally get lazy and do a basic vinaigrette with olive oil and balsamic, but i need to get out of the rut and this sounds like the perfect way to do it (:
I try and do something new each week just to change it up 🙂
sounds like a great dressing. shame about the electricity!
It is such a pain in winter when we don’t have power at night!
