Low-Fat Sweet Ginger Tahini Dressing (Oil-Free)
This dressing is perfect on top of romaine lettuce, vermicelli rice noodles, steamed vegetables, or anything you can think of. I developed this recipe while I was at the Living Light Culinary Institute. I wanted to create an oil-free dressing, and my absolute favorite flavor is sesame ginger. With the help of my peers Meera and Jeannette, I was able to take my original recipe to a whole new level. I hope you love it as much as I do.
