This is my go-to dressing. I use it on everything from steamed veggies to salads and sandwiches. This is my go-to dressing. I use it on everything from steamed veggies to salads and sandwiches.

    For those concerned with salt, you might want to try Bragg's Liquid Aminos as a sub for the soy sauce. It is a natural soy alternative. It is a vegetable protien from soy beans. It tastes like soy without all the salt, only 160mg. We love it around here and can be used in any recipe. - 9/21/12

    According to Google, Tahini is a paste made of ground sesame seeds which is used in many Near and Far East recipes.

    I'll have to try this, thank you!
    To JANTO2, who states that Bragg's Liquid Aminos is better than soy sauce, if you compare it to light/low sodium soy sauce, you'll actually find that Bragg's is *very* high in sodium!!! Low sodium soy is the better alternative if you're concerned about your sodium!

    The dark brown color was not appetizing and it seemed heavy on the vinegar and garlic for my tastes. - 3/5/12

    This was GREAT on portabella sandwiches!
    They tasted just as good as restaurant sandwiches, at 1/2 to 1/3 the calories!

    Also, the fact that the dressing was thicker helped it stay "in the sandwich", rather than making a mess.
