Date, tahini and dijon dressing
Serves: 1¼ - 1½ cups
  • 5 fresh pitted dates
  • ½ clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1½ tablespoons tahini
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ cup white wine vinegar (apple cider vinegar would work well too)
  1. Place the dates and garlic in a large jug. Cover generously with boiling water. Leave to soak for 2 minutes. Drain, reserving the soaking liquid also.
  2. Place the dates, garlic, mustard, tahini, oil, vinegar and ½ cup reserved soaking liquid (for mayo) or ¾ cup reserved soaking liquid (for a runny dressing) in the jug and blend with a hand-held blender until smooth. Season to taste. Store in the fridge.
