Creamy garlic dressing

T made this dressing the other night for our salads. He is the Dressing guy in our house because he makes the very best salad dressings completely from scratch. My dressing are usually very boring consisting of only vinegar and oil.

This is dressing is made with tahini. Tahini is sesame butter, like peanut butter but using sesame seeds instead. Typically it is used in Mediterranean foods like hummus. We can find it in the ethnic food aisle here in Beaumont. Larger cities should be able to find it with no problem.

Creamy Garlic Dressing
2-5 cloves of garlic (adjust to your tolerance or love of garlic)
3 tbsp of tahini
2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar
5 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp of onion powder
1 tsp of soy sauce

Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth.

Mix with your favorite salad or use as a vegetable dip. If you go with all 5 cloves it has a bit of a kick to it so you might want to encourage your dining partner to share in the dressing or talk to you from a distance.
