Tahini lends a lovely rich flavor and creamy texture to this dressing. It also gets a slightly sweet and sour tang from the maple syrup and miso. Extremely versatile, its perfect on a green salad, as a dipping sauce for crudités or even tossed into recipes that call for yogurt.
In blender or food processor, combine oil, miso, lemon juice, garlic and ginger. Blend until well combined.
Add tahini, maple syrup and 1 cup water. With machine running, gradually add another 1 cup water and blend until mixture is smooth and creamy, scraping down sides of container as necessary with a rubber spatula to ensure no large clumps of tahini or miso are left unblended. Be patient and resist the temptation to add more liquid; otherwise the final product will be too runny. Stir in dulse flakes if desired.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 4 days. Before using, bring to room temperature, then whisk to regain its smooth texture.
