Low FODMAP Tahini Dressing

When following the low FODMAP diet it can be tricky to find a nice dressing when many dressings contain garlic or other ingredients that are not FODMAP friendly. But when you make your own you are free to add whatever you like! I particularly love using tahini (made from sesame seeds) and it can be found hulled or un-hulled. The hulled version has a milder taste and lighter color but the hulled version has more nutrients so see what works for you.

This quick little dressing will keep for a few days in the fridge and will jazz up any salad or serve it over warm steamed or roast veggies and it works well with chicken and beef too.

At the time of writing, freshly squeezed orange juice had not been tested for its FODMAP level (as per the Monash University FODMAP Diet App) but oranges had been and no FODMAPs were detected. So it would be best to use orange juice squeezed fresh from orange and you should be able to get ¼ cup of juice from ½ to 1 orange.
