Sun-Dried Tomato Tahini Dressing: Annie's Woodstock Copycat

There are some dressings out there that completely make or break the salad. This Sun-Dried Tomato Tahini Dressing is that dressing for me. Usually, I need lots of toppings on my salads, yummy cheeses and a great dressing to make me want to eat it, but this dressing is the opposite. I can have it on a bed of greens ... any greens, and I am a happy camper!

A few years back, we were at Paul's Aunt's house for dinner. She served a salad with Annie's Woodstock dressing. After I downed my salad and wiped my bread in whatever dressing remained on the plate, I had to ask what dressing it was. I have never forgotten that dressing, but yet it took a while to actually make it (I vowed not to buy dressings a while back ... everything's better homemade). Once I finally got the taste to my liking, this is one of those dressings that is now a staple in our refrigerator.

The best thing about this dressing is it's more than just a dressing. The tahini makes it nice and thick so you can use it as a sauce, spread or dip too. I spread it on my wraps, dip my carrots in it. The sweetness of the tomatoes and the tart lemon and vinegar and the nutty tahini makes it the perfect everything!
