My Plantcentric Journey

This is a recipe from Sparkpeople http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=2005266 that I double and keep in glass jars in the fridge.  It is our go-to salad dressing.  It kind of has a tangy Caesar taste.    You could also use it to put in sandwiches in place of mayo.   I change it up a tiny bit by using Bragg Liquid Aminos http://bragg.com/products/bragg-liquid-aminos-soy-alternative.html in place of soy sauce.  Tahini is ground up sesame seeds and tastes quite a bit like peanut butter.
