Lemon-Tahini Dressing

Tahini can be used to flavor sauces and soups or to make salad dressings creamy. If the oil rises to the top, just give it a good stir before using. This dressing can also be usedas a sauce for steamed broccoli and other vegetables, baked potatoes, or beans. Freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice provides Vitamin C with no sulfites.
