Any way to replace the raisins in the salad dressing with something else.

You can use chopped dates, dried cranberries, or chopped dried apricots.

You could use peanut butter, cashew butter, sunflower seeds or hemp seeds =)

1 cup uncooked makes 3 cups cooked. Use all three cups for recipe

I just made this. Wow! The flavors are so fantastic. Sweet, savory, hint of onion. And the Tahini gave it a rich earthiness. This will be featured at Thanksgiving. Thank you for the recipe. Thank you both for all you do. Your show is a blessing to our health and family!
