Lime Tahini Sauce

Thanks to Rachael Breneman in Ohio for this recipe!
This is good on many things, especially on salads or vegetables.

1/2 cup water
1/2 cup tahini (sesame seed butter)
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup soy sauce 
1 tsp. minced garlic
Sweetener (agave, organic sugar or stevia) to taste

Combine all ingredients in blender until combined.  Adjust sweetener to taste.  It it thickens, thin with water.

Notes from Lois: Lemon juice can be used in place of lime juice, and almond butter could replace tahini.

If you live near a Trader Joe's store, or will be near one in your travels, keep in mind that they sell delicious almond butter in 1 pound jars for only $4.99.  It's double that price many other places, so I always stock up when I get the chance.
