I love blood oranges and when they are in season I love to use them in as many recipes as I can! Two weekends back I wanted to make a Tahini dressing for the Loam Agronomics CSA event, and the blood oranges were sitting on my counter to I figured I would try this new twist to go with some fresh vegetables from Loam!
I made a small batch but there were two whole blood oranges in it! If you can’t find blood oranges you can use two small regular oranges as well!
2 blood oranges peeled
1 lemon juiced
2 tablespoon sesame oil
1 handful soaked cashews
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup Tahini
1/4 cup water (add less or more if needed to reach your preferred consistency, also depends on how juicy the citrus fruits are!)
Salt to taste
1 teaspoon maple syrup (optional, only if the oranges are not very sweet!)
Add all ingredients except water and maple syrup to a good blender. Add a little water as needed. Blend well. Have a taste and add a touch of maple syrup if preferred. Blend and chill. You can also keep it slightly thicker and use as a dip or have it thinner to serve with a nice large salad!
