Yin Yang Salad Dressing



Makes about 1 1/2 cups of Deliciousness


1/4 cup tahini (or the nut butter of your choice)

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon tamari

1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1/2 teaspoon mustard powder

1/2 teaspoon chili powder powder

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

pinch of cayenne pepper

3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 cup water

This dressing can be made in regular blender or with an immersion blender.  Place all ingredients except the olive oil and 1/4 cup of the water in a blender jar (or mixing bowl if using an immersion blender).  Pulse until well combined.  Add the oil and pulse briefly, just until incorporated.  Add the remaining water and pulse briefly until the desired consistency is reached.  Serve immediately or cover tightly & keep refrigerated when not in use.  Take out & bring to room temp and shake thoroughly before using.  But, it never stays around long enough for that.
