Ginger Lime Tahini Dressing

Ginger Lime Tahini DressingWhen I had my first typical American salad or western salad, I chose ranch for the dressing. Ever since then I would drizzle on some of this ranch dressing whenever I had a green leafy salad. However, ranch dressing doesn’t fit in the vegan diet category. So, why not make this vegan ginger lemon tahini dressing? This fantastic vegan choice definitely satisfied my Asian taste buds on salad. Also, by making this Asian dressing yourself, as apposed to buying one, you avoid the much higher sugar and unhealthy ingredients such as high fructose corn syrup.

For vegan dressings, the vinaigrette varieties seem to be the most popular. I love how simple they can pair with all sorts of salad mixes, such as spinach salad or spring salad mix. However, for salad with thicker leaves, such as cabbage, I prefer a creamier and thicker dressing. That’s why this ginger lemon tahini dressing became my new favorite dressing drizzled over red cabbage salad.

By using fresh ingredients, your salad will taste fresher yet. At the end, don’t forget to add some roasted sesame seeds to give it an extra nutty flavor.
