  • Great! Thanks! More vegetable recipes please.

  • I tried this tonight. It’s creamy and light. I had no agave so I used honey and found it a little sweet. I would like to add a 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper to it. Nice refreshing change for a salad dressing.

  • Substitute avocado for olive oil and eliminate the stomach irritant, black pepper, Add some garlic salt and dill weed.

  • If you have the Designer or Signature Series blender, the "Dressings" button is the whisk icon.

  • What’s a substitute for tahini? It’s not easily available in Mumbai

    Sarayu Kamat on

  • Is that the one that says Batters? Thanks for help!

  • Do you have sesame seeds there? You can make your own by blending them into a paste. This works best in the Twister jar. Others have used peanut butter or hemp seed as a substitute for tahini.

  • Yes, on the Total Blender it says Batters.

  • Looks very nice. Plan to try it today! I will use stevia instead of agave, as agave is too high in fructose.

  • nothing is wrong with agave. some people speak personal opinion as if it is fact. :)

  • What’s wrong with agave?

    dulcimoo on

  • I take it this recipe is calling for fresh herbs

    Veg Head on

  • What is tahini,where is it found in store

    Becky Pedone on

  • Yes, it would be best with fresh herbs. Happy blending!

  • Make sure to peel the cucumber, no GMO corn wax to change your bowel flora into a pesticide factory that way. It is better to use organic cane sugar than agave, but any of your favorite healthy sugar or sugar substitute like organic stevia would do fine.

  • Tahini is a paste made from ground sesame seeds. If you can’t find it in a store near you, you can make it yourself by roasting 2 1/2 cups of sesame seeds and blending them with 3/4 cup olive oil. This post gives great information on where to look for it in the store: http://gourmet.lovetoknow.c…
