I like keeping my refrigerator stocked with lots of fresh ingredients for spur-of-the-moment salads + bowls. Be it leafy kale, leftover cooked quinoa, or cherry tomatoes that I found on sale at the farmers market, it feels great to whip out a colorful salad when week day lunches get challenging.

Say hello to my Tahini-Maple dressing.

maple tahini dressingUsing tahini as the base for salad dressings has been a game-changer for me. It creates a naturally creamy + dairy-free sauce without added thickeners. Plus, tahini salad dressings have a perfectly earthy flavor that just can’t be beat.

Blend that tahini with some maple syrup for some natural sweetness, garlic for flavor, and vinegar for a big of tang. Finally, stir in hemp seeds for added protein + texture. Friends, this dressing is everything.
