Course Salad, salad dressings


  • 1/2 cup cooked chickpeas
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 - 1 tbsp tahini adjust to taste, 1 tbsp will give a richer, fuller flavor
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2  1/2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1  1/2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp chipotle hot sauce I use Tabasco brand; can use more if desired!
  • 1/4 cup water or more to thin as desired
  • optional: 2-3 tbsp cilantro chopped


  1. n a blender (I use the Blendtec twister jar), add all ingredients except the cilantro. Puree until very smooth (this will take less than a minute in a high speed blender, may take several minutes in a standard blender). Taste, and adjust with additional lime juice, sweetener, or salt as desired. If using the cilantro, stir through. For a thinner dressing, add a touch more water and stir through. Serve! Makes about 3/4 - 1 cup dressing.
