Life before tahini-based salad dressings is a distant memory. Discovering this delightfully bitter, creamy ingredient caused traditional vinaigrettes to fall out of favor. This simple dressing gets most of its flavor from a careful balance of tahini, lemon, and salt; try it not only on salads but as a dip for raw vegetables, baked tofu, and tempeh nuggets. It also makes a surprisingly good pasta sauce, especially in spring and summer. Toss with linguine, bitter greens, halved grape tomatoes
