Pumpkin Tahini Dressing

I feel a bit like pumpkin just broke up with me. For the last couple of months, pumpkin has stood squarely at my side. He took me out for dreamy pasta dishes, made me coffee and chocolate chip studded oats in the morning, and even brought homemade brownies and made breakfast for dinner. But then he vanished. Gone was my beloved sidekick. And even though lots of new and shiny things have surfaced to take his place, tonight I am fighting to bring pumpkin back, one salad at a time.
