Citrus Tahini Dressing from Let Them Eat Vegan

Citrus-Tahini Dressing

This healthy homemade dressing is slightly thick, thanks to the inclusion of tahini. The flavors are kid friendly, and so it makes salad recipes a little more interesting for the little ones. Another one from my "Saucy and Dippy" chapter in LTEV!
