Creamy Chipotle Dressing

Tahini is the base of most of my salad dressings. It adds a creamy element, and stands in for oil. This dressing is so yummy...the chipotle can be spicy, so start by adding one, and add more to taste! I think you'll find yourself adding this to salads, tacos, rice bowls and more, because it is so flavorful and versatile.

1 Tbsp tahini
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
