Yoghurt and Tahini Dressing

There should be no limit to how much a human can be grateful for.  Trying to count all our blessings is a challenge, but we should never forget to give thanks to the Almighty for granting us every little that we have and/or that comes our way.  Today I am grateful for this view, (more on my trip to Italy in future posts;-) )

and WIFI off-course, so I can get ahead with with bringing YOU my blog posts?… BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY it is the little things that matter most, I am Grateful to this little stumble upon, I had one day in my kitchen in Bahrain, while tossing together a few ingredients for a dip, this is what emerged.

Now this has become my absolute Favourite Dressing/Sauce/Dip…. it is so versatile that it can be used and enjoyed with almost anything you like.  Do give this one a try and you will see what I mean.  I have added here a simple Roasted Vegetable dish that the Yoghurt and Tahini dressing pairs well with, But limiting it to just theses vegetables is not necessary.  Personally I enjoy this with a Salad, grilled meats, or as a dipping sauce for savouries. Tahini is a sesame seed paste that is made from soaking sesame seeds in boiling water, and grinding them into a paste, using water to achieve the desired consistency of it.  However, here I have used ready store bought variety which is readily available here in Bahrain Supermarkets.

Do give this recipe/s a try, and I look forward to all your feedback, always.

Happy Dip/Sauce/Salad Dressing Making Lovelies?
