Today I have for you a really simple raw homemade dressing, Creamy Vegan Cilantro and Lime Tahini Dressing.
I used tahini as the base and added the cilantro and lime to give it that classic flavor combination.
You can use this as a salad dressing, or stay tuned because I will be posting two new recipes using the dressing called “Spaghetti Squash Pasta with Creamy Vegan Cilantro and Lime Tahini Dressing” and “Cilantro and Lime Kale Chips” and they are both ~so~ good!
This dressing takes about 5 minutes to make with a Vitamix and only needs a few basic ingredients that you probably already have on hand.
Traditional store-bought salad dressings are made with GMO-ingredients and preservatives:
