Maple Mustard Tahini Dressing

This was one of the first dressings I experimented with and ended up loving!  I took inspiration from the “No Tuna” Salad Sandwich recipe on forksoverknives.com and went from there.  In addition to chickpeas, I enjoy this dressing with baked sweet potato, with bean burger patties (seen below), on salads, or in sandwiches as the original recipe suggests.  It’s a wonderfully versatile recipe that is definitely worth experimenting with!
