I have to admit for the past two years I have been eating salad and yogurt every day for lunch. I do mix it up a bit and change some salad ingredients, but I am a creature of habit. Until one day I went into Whole Foods and found a lemon tahini dressing for my salad instead of my going for my usual balsamic. Let me say, it was game changing. But Whole Foods isn’t too close to drive to on a weekly basis to get my weekly dressing fix. Instead I decided to make a copycat- and I am pretty darn proud. It is lemony, creamy, and nutty, and makes my kale salads taste even better. This dressing is super easy to make, healthy for you, and free of any of those weird preservatives you often find in salad dressings.
