Parsley Tahini Dressing

In Palestine, you cant go out to eat anywhere without Ba’dounsia showing up.  On your falafal, in your shawarma, to dip your fried veg into, poured over salads.

My husband, Christo, thinks he hates parsley but laps this up and licks his fingers which indicates otherwise and its got a whole lots of parsley in it!

Tahini is made from ground sesame seeds; rich, smooth and nutritious.

Tahini is exceptionally healthy for you as its packed with vitamin E, B1, B2, B3, B5 and B15, promoting healthy skin, muscles and bones. its a great source of omega-3 and omega-6, so its a vital addition for vegans and vegetarians, who can add these essential fats to their diets by drizzling this dressing over salads, sandwiches, roasted veg, rice or just dipping veg and bread into it. Pasrley is also a rich anti-oxidant with many nutrients including vitamin K, C & A supporting heart health and fighting inflammation.
