Avocado & tahini dressing is an unctuous and yummy sauce going very well with any salad or bowl. A healthy oil-free dressing with yogurt, lemon and maple syrup.
Don’t we all love a good fresh bowl of veggies, maybe add some nuts and cheese and voila! Ultra healthy way to eat lunch on the go and low carbs. Avocado & tahini dressing goes perfectly with any bowl; whether it’s a Poke, Buddha or Freestyle bowl like the one in the picture. This dressing will light up any meal, guaranteed!
Yep, tahini is holy! Well, this sesame seed paste got an A+ on the health side. It’s got all the benefits someone would dream of, from reducing inflammation to a great antioxidant. This seed might be minuscule but it’s got a whole lot of power, lots of proteins and vitamins. So, basically, yeah, it’s pretty holy… we should all have it in our diet. (If you want to know more about its health benefits check this link up!) Plus, it tastes great, although if it is used in moderation like all good things because it’s got a bold flavour.
These green little veggies are quite a fun one to play with, plus their lovely bright green colour goes fantastically everywhere. I use a lot of avocado in my recipe if I feel like a creamy sauce without all the oil. Check out these recipes with avocado sauce from the FoodOlic, maybe you’ll get inspired:
Alternative ways to use
This dressing could easily be used as a spread or dip for some crunchy veggies and crackers. I would even recommend leaving the mayo in the fridge and using this instead for your next sandwich, with chicken, ham or eggs. It’s a super polyvalent dip/sauce/dressing. I’m thinking of a lovely chickpea salad or a grilled halloumi piece. A million ways to use it!
