What does the posted picture look nice and white but not mine? Dates turn it brown.

Not sure why but I’m sure it tastes great.

Mine is a bit brown too, and I didn’t use as much water, I like a thicker dressing. I used my Ninja blender (it makes real smooth smoothies). But gosh, that dressing is yummy. I had thought I’d be adding spices like garlic powder and fresh black pepper, but I might just leave it as is.

My dressing was too thin! Maybe will use 3/4 cup of water next time. Anyone else had this same experience?

It usually starts out thin and as it sits it gets a bit thicker

Evelyn Norwood May 15, 2019 - 1:05 pm

Mine was thin too. Followed recipe exactly. It did not thicken up, but separated in the refrigerator. I used my vitamix and always get good results.

Thanks Jill for the “POURABLE” dressing! Can’t wait to make!

What tahini do you use? We are looking for a good brand. We tried to make our own raw and it wasn’t easy or good.

Jill Dalton May 20, 2019 - 9:12 am

I buy mine from Trader Joe’s. It’s their brand

Made this today, and it is delicious! Thank you!

Would the recipe work if you use sesame seeds instead of tahini ? And if so, do you know how much of the sesame seeds to use in place of the tahini ?

Jill Dalton June 1, 2019 - 4:29 pm

I think it would but haven’t tried it. My guess would be about 3-4 Tbsp of sesame seeds.

We dressed our roasted vegetables (potatoes, onions, red pepper and asparagus) for dinner tonight with this dressing and it was delicious! Thanks for sharing.

Love this dressing…use it on massaged kale salad…totally liven it up … so easy to eat greens with Jill’s (and Talia’s) dressing recipes!

Can we substitute the dates with honey? sorry not vegan yet.
