Tahini Zucchini Dressing

I wanted to share another raw salad dressing with you. This one is so creamy, so easy, and super delicious. It is made with just a few ingredients and can be made in a small, personal sized food processor or in a blender.
When I transitioned to this lifestyle over 6 years ago it seemed like I was always searching for raw salad dressing recipes. I knew that the standard processed dressings were no longer an option due to all of the harmful ingredients and unhealthy oils they contain. So I was constantly searching for yummy and satisfying dressings to use on my salads and as vegetable dips. Well, here is one that is definitely a winner! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Diced organic zucchini, raw tahini, fresh lemon juice, spices

Organic coconut nectar sugar

Tahini Zucchini Dressing

by Elizabeth
1/4 Cup of diced, organic raw zucchini
2 Tablespoons of raw Tahini
Juice of 2 lime wedges
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 tsp coconut nectar sugar
Splash of water for blending to desired consistency
In my small Tribest blender container I blended all of the above ingredients, adding a splash or two of water as needed to obtain the consistency I wanted.

I drizzled mine over a simple tossed salad made with Romaine, baby peppers, cucumber, and Grape Tomatoes.
