Single Serving Tahini Dressing

Happy Presidents' Day! I wish I could tell you that my love and I are off somewhere fun (like we typically are for 3 day weekends), but unfortunately, the BF is v sick. After going on his first business trip for his new job, he arrived home late Friday night totally ill. A combination of cold weather, shaking too many not so clean hands, and really awful food, which to be honest was probably the biggest culprit. There are many more business trips in his future, which is an adjustment for both of us, but that means a lot of nutrition lessons and meal planning in his future, too :)...you may or may not know that I recently enrolled in Bauman College and am on my way to being a certified holistic nutritionist! He may have to pull "a me," rent a car, and stock up on easy to make hotel room meals from the local health food store wherever he ends up next. More to come on that later, but do let me know if you would be interested in a travel series of how to thrive, not just survive, a business trip food wise. Any whoo, if you kind of missed meal prep due to the long weekend (it happens to the best of us), I hope that this quick, easy, and delicious single serving salad dressing recipe will make your week a breeze! I like to prep the meal ahead of time and then just whip up this dressing (that literally can go on anything) when I'm ready to eat. It can actually turn leftovers into bestovers! Get ready...
