We are in love with this. It is going on or in most things that we are munching on at the moment. Like most Beach House recipes, its super easy and quick.
Jane and I are both missing big flavours, I normally use a lot of spice in my cooking and they are lacking in our current diet. Jane, of course, adores chocolate. The sensual experience of raw eating is totally different, but this is a very creamy and more-ish dressing to go with the crunch of our salads.
The quantity of each flavour depends on your palate, maybe you like it sweet, maybe you like slightly sour. Have a play here. The flax seeds add a nice crunch and the garlic a little heat. If you are not a huge fan of raw garlic (its fiery) omit the garlic. It will make a great dressing.
We make alot of this, it keeps well in the fridge and I’m sure will soon become on of your ‘house’ favourites.
Makes a decent bowlful
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (evoo)
2 tbs tahini
2 cloves garlic (crushed, optional)
1 tbs apple cider vinegar
2 teas brown rice syrup (or other sweetener)
1 tbs flax seeds
1 teas braggs liquid amino acid (or a pinch of sea salt).
Add all the ingredients to a bowl and bled together with a fork. Taste, adjust flavour according to taste. We like ours quite tangy, so we add a little more vinegar, but there should be a good balance of sweet and sour over the creamy tahini.
You can douse it on vegetables, salads, it would be amazing on new or roasted potatoes (leave overnight in a fridge and let the flavours mingle and soak).
We Love It!
We can’t stop making this and devouring it, smothered on whatever it takes!
Apparently cider vinegar increases memory and concentration, which we need quite desperately. Cider vinegar contains over 90 substances and is actually less acidic than coca cola.
We thought you might like to see what we actually put this dressing on.
Above is a picture of last nights dinner, served with the ‘Beach House Dressing’. Jane’s ‘Traffic Light Salad’ with a delicious ‘Butternut Squash and Seaweed Salad’:
Diced butternut squash and courgette, grated carrot and red onion, topped with diced cauliflower and nori (soaked overnight).

We’ve been doing something similar since I’m a vinegar fiend … Almost the same actually minus the tahini; but we’ve been adding a half thai red pepper or jalapeño for more kick!
