Tahini Dressing - Food ProcessorCuisinart Original Recipe
Tahini (a paste of ground sesame seeds) can now be found in most grocery stores. Be sure to stir well before measuring out, as it naturally separates in its jar. This dressing is a perfect match for our falafel, but is also just as delicious on a salad of mixed greens."
1 garlic clove, peeled
1/3 cup tahini
¼ to ½ cup water, divided
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon honey
¾ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
- Insert the chopping blade into the work bowl of the food processor. With the machine running, drop the garlic through the feed tube. Allow to process until finely chopped. Stop machine to scrape down sides. Add the tahini, ¼ cup of water, lemon juice, honey, salt and pepper.
- Turn machine on to process and while mixing, slowly add the oil through the feed tube. Continue to process until desired consistency. If dressing seems too thick, process in additional water.
