Sweet Sesame Dressing (gluten free, vegan, low sodium)

Sweet Sesame Salad
Spring might finally be here. How about a fresh, crisp salad? When cutting back on sodium, salad dressing can be your undoing because a serving of of store-bought can contain 300mg of sodium or more. This version contains under 15mg, even if you drown your greens in it. You will not miss the salt because homemade Sweet Sesame Dressing is rich and flavourful. Mix it up in minutes for a restaurant-style salad at home.

To dress four to six entree-sized salads, mix together, stirring well after each addition:

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp tahini
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp parsley
1 tsp sesame seeds (raw or toasted)

Drizzle over your salad and toss. Our plates contained baby romaine, sugar snap peas, raw shredded cabbage, sliced carrots, and mushrooms with a sprinkling of raw sesame seeds for garnish. (Store any unused dressing in the fridge for a couple of days.)
