Quick & Easy Lemon Tahini Dressing

Jill Dalton
Right in time for spring, here is a super quick and easy Lemon Tahini Salad Dressing recipe. It is light and tangy with a hint of sweetness that is perfect for just about any salad. It also works really well as a pourable dressing for steamed veggies or as a dipping sauce for potato wedges. It will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days.

    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.

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

      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.

    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.

  4. 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 ?

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

  6. 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!
