Print Friendly

So I’m going to keep things super short for you today because I have literally been trying to write this post for 3 days now.

Oh how I wish I was kidding.

Sadly, I am not.

It seems I have gone and got myself a major case of writers block

I’ve been standing here, staring at my laptop for hours on end, on and off for 3 whole days ( ← yes, really) trying to come up with something fun, witty or interesting to tell you.

A funny anecdote or cool story but . . . I got nothin’

Why is this so hard for me?!

I have no trouble at all coming up with recipe ideas.

I literally have lists, upon lists, upon lists, upon, lists, upon lists of all kinds of delicious things I want to make and share with you, my sweet invisible internet BFF, but when it comes time to sit (or stand in my case) and write something fun to go with the recipe . . . I find it really hard.

Like really, REALLY hard!

But, you know what’s not hard . . .

Making this spicy tahini and lime dressing . . .

And, um, you guys . . . this dressing  . . . is life.

Creamy, dreamy deliciously nutty tahini , combined with sprinkling of garlic powder, a pinch of red pepper flakes and cheeky squeeze of light fresh zesty lime is absolute perfection!

1 bowl – 1 spoon – 5 ingredients and 2 minutes in the making  and you my friend have yourself one epic little flavor-bomb!

No fancy whisks or electronic equipment required!!!

And talk about tantalize those taste buds baby!

I seriously can’t stop eating it on alllll of the things!

And you know what?! I’m not even a little bit sorry about it.

It’s just so good!

It’s such a quick and easy, deliciously simple way to spice things up add a tonne of flavor to just about anything!

It’s great on salads, it’s great on burgers, it’s incredible on a creamy, dreamy,  avocado too (like this – best snack ever!!!)  it would go very nicely drizzled over some roasted pumpkin or crispy taters and oh how good it would be slathered onto these quick and easy carrot and zucchini fritters too!! (Seriously, let’s do that, asap!)

You could totally use it hollandaise style and serve it with eggs, a nice juicy steak some grilled chicken, salmon or protein of choice – yum!

But, it’s also all kinds of amazing simply served alongside some fresh cut veggies, carrots and snap peas are my all time fave but cucumber, broccoli, capsicum/peppers are good to – you name it, it just works!

Seriously, so good!

And you know what makes it even better?!

The fact that it comes together in less than 2 minutes using just a handful of ingredients that I bet you have on hand already and, it also happens to be vegan, gluten free, dairy free and paleo friendly.

Deliciously winning on so many levels!

FYI – This dressing is intentionally made to be on the thicker side because;

1 – Ain’t nobody got time for watery dressings, am I right?!

2 – That way I can use it as a spread and dip as well as a dressing.

So versatile and delicious I tell you, I can not wait for you to try because one taste and I know you be as in love with it as I am.

I mean would you just look at how deliciously luscious and creamy it is?! 😍😍😍

All natural, quick and easy, light, fresh, creamy, dreamy, garlic infused, spicy, tahini and lime dressing . . .

Make it. Eat it. Love, love love it.

Spicy Tahini and Lime Dressing
{Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Keto & Paleo Friendly}

Makes approx 3/4-1 cup of light, fresh, creamy dreamy, deliciously nutty, zip, zingy, spicy tahini and lime dressing

Ingredients –

1/2 cup of tahini

2 teaspoons of garlic powder

2 teaspoons of freshly squeezed lime juice (about 1/2 a small lime)

A pinch of red pepper flakes

Salt and pepper to taste

4-6 Tablespoons of water – more or less to reach desired consistency.

Method –

1 – Place all ingredients into a bowl or glass jar and stir (or shake) to combine.

This dressing is on the thicker side which is just the way I like it. That way I can use it as a spread as well as a dressing.  Feel free to add some a little extra water (1 tsp at a time) to reach desired consistency.

2 – Taste and adjust seasonings accordingly. Also, if you prefer a thinner consistency add a touch of water (or you could try using coconut or almond milk if you prefer) 1 teaspoon at a time to reach desired consistency.

3 – Drizzle over your favorite salad, roasted veg, carrot and zucchini fritters or use it to simply dip fresh cut veggie sticks for a seriously flavorful snack.

4 – Store in an air-tight container in the fridge and should keep well for up to 7 days but I doubt it will last that long, mine never does 😉

Enjoy xo
