Nutty, creamy, and a little zippy from the lemon, this dressing is incredibly versatile.
1 medium garlic clove, minced
¼ cup lemon juice
3 tablespoons well-stirred tahini
2 tablespoons water, plus more if needed
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and red pepper flakes to taste
1. Whisk all ingredients together until smooth, adding more water if needed to thin the dressing slightly. Taste and adjust seasoning (don’t worry if it tastes a little sharp on the lemon, it will marry perfectly with the sweet grated carrots).
