We love this salad dressing! The recipe was found here at and I'm so glad she did all the work to make it lower fat.

6 ounces lite firm silken tofu (1/2 pkg. of Mori-Nu) [1 pkg or one 14 oz. can white beans]
1/4 c. [1/2 c.] water
1 1/2 T. [3 T.] cider vinegar
2 T. [1/4 c.] lemon juice
2 t. [4 t.] low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 t. [1/2 t.] salt
1/4 t. [1/2 t.] sesame oil
1 T. [2 T.] tahini
2 [4] green onions, white parts removed, chopped
1 T. [2 T.] chopped fresh parsley, packed
1 [2] large clove garlic
1/8 t. [1/4 t.] pepper
  • Place all ingredients in blender and process until smooth.
*I usually double the recipe so I can just use the whole package of tofu. The more salad you eat the better right? Also, you can add tahini a tablespoon at a time for taste, but the fat and calories go up as the tahini increases.

*The last couple times we've made this, we've added a little stevia (any sweetener would work) and it was so good! We've been dipping pita bread in it and it's delicious. Also if you want to make a lot at one time, we use one whole box of lite tofu and one can of white beans (instead of a second box of tofu), and then 4x the rest of the recipe.

what if you don't have sesame oil?
