Tahini Vegetable Dressing and Dip

For the love of all things savory, if you like the flavor of Tahini, make this dressing immediately. It is scrumptious! Great on steamed broccoli, green beans, asparagus or carrots, as well as cooked shiitake mushrooms. Fabulous on salad greens.

3 teaspoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons cider vinegar
½ teaspoon sea or kosher salt
2 teaspoons low sodium soy sauce
Dash of garlic powder (not garlic salt)-- optional
¼ cup Tahini (found in some grocery stores and all natural food stores)
¼ cup water
¼ cup vegetable oil
¼ teaspoon sesame oil
Sesame seeds

1) In a blender, small food processor or by hand, whisk together the lemon juice, vinegar, salt, soy sauce and garlic powder. Add in the tahini and water, whisk again. Now, whisk as you drizzle in the vegetable and sesame oils. Store in a jar in the refrigerator until ready to use-- up to a week. Sprinkle dressed veggies with sesame seeds.
Makes a bit more than one cup.
