Honey Mustard Tahini Dressing

Honey mustard dressings have always been a favorite of mine, but they are usually loaded with sugar. This is a simple and fantastic alternative that only requires 5 ingredients.

I made this dressing last night for my Butternut Squash and Kale Salad recipe and it was the perfect compliment! It's tangy, sweet and has a subtle nutty flavor from the tahini, giving the dressing a creamy consistency. This is the perfect dressing to have on-hand in your fridge as it will go great with any salad!

4 tablespoons of dijon mustard (creamy, but no sugar added)
4 tablespoons of agave nectar
2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons of tahini
The juice of 1/2 lemon

Mix all ingredients in a small to medium size bowl and whisk until combined. Dress over your fav salad and enjoy! *Side note: if you feel that the dressing is too tangy, add more agave or sugar substitute (such as splenda, truvia, stevia, etc.).

I have been making very similar for random sauces, spreads and dips. I use honey instead agave and most time I add Franks Red Hot Sauce, just a couple dashes. If your wondering, Franks is actually a great recipe and is no more than 4 natural ingredients. Im using it on chicken sandwich tonight, looking at rice flour pan fry recipes as we speak for the bread. Take care
