Low Fat Creamy Tahini Dressing

Low Fat Creamy Tahini Dressing

What’s the SECRET ingredient in this yummy creamy dressing? Long Yellow Summer Squash! But don’t tell anyone 🙂

Squash is wonderful way to add thickness to dips, sauces and spreads.

You’ll add fiber and nutrition and cut down on fat. But not flavor!

Did you know that Summer Squash isn’t really even a Vegetable??

It’s actually a hard walled Berry, like a cucumber or watermelon, and otherwise known as “Pepos”

This dressing also makes FABULOUS Kale Chips!
