Tahini Goddess Dressing for Slaw

I was window shopping at Whole Foods last week and found a pre-cut package of organic slaw.  It had red cabbage, white cabbage and a few diced red onions.  Looked delicious.  Then I saw a package of organic pre-cut multi-colored carrots.  Someone saved me a ton of time because all I have to do now is make a delicious tahini goddess dressing.

New to tahini?  Here is a brief summary:

About.com describes tahini as a ground sesame seed paste, similar to peanut butter. It is a creamy, oily, and smooth nut butter rich in calcium. Look for tahini in a glass jar or a can, and sometimes in a powdered, dehydrated form in health food stores, or in the ethnic foods aisle of your regular grocery store. You can also find fresh tahini in the refrigerator section next to the hummus in larger well-stocked grocery stores.

Tahini has 9 grams of protein per 2 tablespoons.  It reminds me of thin peanut butter.  This recipe has a tangy peanutty flavor, really really good.
