Healthy Tahini Salad Dressing - 3 ways!

 

We LOVE tahini over here at Shulman Health & Weight Loss. Tahini is made from grinding sesame seeds into a smooth paste and it is a staple in many cuisines. We love incorporating it in salad dressings to get in a serving of healthy fats which is an important component of a well-rounded healthy diet.

 

Here are our 3 favourite tahini-based homemade salad dressing recipes...
