Fresh and healthy homemade green tahini, sesame-seed salad dressing/dip.

The following recipe gives a refreshing twist to the classic Mediterranean tahini dip – it adds fresh greens, which give a lovely color and a delicious, slightly tangy and bitter taste that goes great with the oily fraction of the tahini. The best part about it is its versatility – no exact measurements are needed. It’s possible to play with the sort and amount of greens and the amount of liquids, so you can get a thicker, spread-like consistency, or a thinner variation which is used as a salad dressing.

Contrary to what many health adherents advise, I recommend using tahini from hulled sesame seeds, for its sweeter taste and smoother texture. It’s true that the sesame seed hull contains large amounts of calcium, but it is bound in a way that makes it not readily absorbable.

Green Tahini Dressing/Dip Recipe

Ingredients:

• tahini from hulled sesame seeds (approximately 1\2 cup)
• juice of one lemon
• 2-3 garlic cloves
• 1\2 tsp sea salt
• water (1\2 to 1 cup)
• about 1 cup chopped fresh greens – a mixture (in any proportions) of parsley, cilantro and dill. You may omit the dill if you prefer.
