A Honey Sesame Salad Dressing So Good You’ll be Licking the Bowl
I’ve honestly never been much of a salad person. And if I am, it’s mostly when eating out — because there’s just something about a salad at a restaurant that seems so much better than the one I’d make at home. That is, until now. What’s the secret to great salads at home?
1.) A variety of awesome toppings
2.) A stellar homemade dressing
With those 2 things, you will be eating a lot more greens. I promise. And both are easy to achieve!
I don’t know why, but I always found even the thought of making a homemade dressing daunting. When there’s an entire grocery aisle dedicated to salad dressing, why would I need to make my own?! But I was so wrong.
This dressing is so good you will be licking the salad bowl, no joke…and dipping every last veggie you can find, into its creamy goodness.
1⁄2 cup/115 g. chickpeas
1⁄4 cup/60 ml. sesame oil
1 Tbsp. soy sauce (or sub Bragg’s liquid aminos)
2 Tbsp. honey
1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
1⁄2 Tbsp. minced garlic
* Makes 3/4 cup of dressing — enough for 2 – 4 salads.
1.) Combine chickpeas and sesame oil.
2.) Use an immersion stick blender or food processor to puree the chickpeas & oil.
3.) Add remaining ingredients and stir thoroughly.
4.) Serve over your favorite salad!
5.) Lick the bowl (optional).
