Procedure

Gather ingredients 

To make dressing: Drain and rinse the chickpeas, if using canned. Place in a blender.
Zest the lemon and add to the blender. 
Juice the lemon into the blender.
Add the tahini, miso, and nutritional yeast to the blender. 
Add 1/2 cup of water. 
Puree until smooth. Taste to adjust seasoning. 
Toss with greens or other salad topping.

Chef's Tip: Tahini is just ground up sesame seeds.  It's like the peanut version of sesame seeds.  It's a great nut-free alternative for anyone struggling with nut allergies.  You can find it near the nut butters.  Roasted tahini packs the most flavor, but I try to avoid tahini with added salt or oils.
