Adapted from different sources and my taste of course.
Mix all the ingredients except the water in the blender.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

If you don’t use the right cilantro it won’t taste as should be. The reason is called “Caribbean tahini” is for the use of the big leave cilantro or “recao” (Eryngium foetidum L., Apiaceae). Small leave cilantro could work but is not the same. As a matter of fact a lot of people use tahini in the Caribbean. But do not intent to visit the Caribbean and go to any main stream restaurant and ask for tahini dressing. The same will happen if you ask for tahini dressing in Dennis rest.

This is so yummy, especially with lime juice.

The ironic thing is that no one has heard of or uses tahini  in the Caribbean. This recipe looks like a good base though, I will try it.

This dressing tasted strangely similar to ranch dressing.  I think a red bell pepper or any sweet pepper is a necessary addition.  Not bad, but not a favorite.
