My favorite Paleo dressing

As I've said before, salads can be hard to eat consistently. I find this to be true for many people. I often see coworkers at the salad bar attempting to "be good" by choosing the salad route instead of a burger or pizza. However, at the end, so many load up on ranch or ceasar dressing and the oils and vinegars go unused. This act of dousing your greens in creamy goodness almost entirely counteracts those attempts to eat well.

 I admit that I've had a hard time giving up my favorite, french dressing. However, I've found quite a few delicious, simple and easy dressings. Below is my favorite:

Tahini Lemon Dressing

  • Equal parts tahini and water
  • Fresh lemon juice, to taste
  • Fresh garlic/garlic powder
  • Cracked pepper, to taste
You can also chop up parsley or other fresh herbs. I sometimes spice it up with some cayenne or paprika.

I love using tahini because it is a natural source of calcium and it creates a creamy texture. My husband and I make multiple servings at once so we can dress up our salads throughout the week with minimal effort.

What's your favorite dressing?

  1. Olive oil and lemon juice is a very simple dressing which tastes delicious. I also like a simple oil and balsamic vinegar dressing but I know that vinegar isn't strictly paleo.
