Here’s a slight variation to my straight tahini dressing. I use Ken’s® light Caesar dressing. I do however drain off the oil in the bottle first. This is a really strong ‘garlicky’ tasting dressing. I love garlic and tahini and I believe these two are simply a ‘match made in heaven’.
‘Throughout history, many different cultures have recognized the potential use of garlic for prevention and treatment of different diseases. Recent studies support the effects of garlic and its extracts in a wide range of applications. These studies raised the possibility of revival of garlic therapeutic values in different diseases. Different compounds in garlic are thought to reduce the risk for cardiovascular diseases, have anti-tumor and anti-microbial effects, and show benefit on high blood glucose concentration [1 ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4103721/]’.
How Mucho Caesar Tahini Lemon Salad Dressing is made…
- A squirt or two of Ken’s light Caesar dressing
- Squeeze half a lemon
- Tablespoon of tahini
- Onion powder
- Shake of hot sauce
- Pinch of parsley
- Mix with fork or shake in small plastic container with lid
- Go to 5 leaf salad I use, here
You don’t have to eat perfectly to be healthy. A large part of my diet is plant based whole food. I have heard of those who can eat heads of romaine lettuce plain and think it tastes like candy. But, I like a good tasting dressing that makes me eat lots of salad.
The 5 lettuce salad isn’t organic, so it’s always better if you do choose any produce organic. Lettuce is notorious for being sprayed with pesticide. Apparently, the bugs like their nutritious green salads as much as we do.
