Lemon Tahini Dressing

Lemon Tahini Dressing

Tahini has become one of my favorite ingredients, and I’ve been using it as a sauce on a lot of noodle and rice dishes recently, but am also loving it as a salad dressing! Tahini is basically peanut-butter but made with sesame seeds, and typically it has a slightly thinner consistency. If you’re totally new to Tahini this blog post from Bon Appetite gives a really great breakdown.

I served it as a dressing recently on a salad (pictured above) of spinach, chicken, carrots, cucumber, pepitas, sunflower seeds, and sesame seeds. This Lemon Tahini Dressing is delicious on a salad, and also makes a great dipping sauce for falafel or fresh veggies.


1/8 cup tahini
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp coarse sea salt
1/2 tsp minced garlic


Place first 4 ingredients in a small bowl and mix until combined. Add water, one tablespoon at a time, until it reaches the desired thickness. Continue to stir until the mixture is smooth. Spoon over salad or make it thicker and use as dipping sauce.
