Try Mana’s secret and simple creamy Tahini Dressing
Date

Keep this lemon tahini dressing on hand in the fridge, and you’ll eat more salad than you ever have before! It’s creamy, nutty, bright, and delicious.

How to Use Lemon Tahini Dressing

Clearly, this lemon tahini dressing is fantastic on salads. I call for it in this Sweet Potato Salad recipe, but it’d also be great on this kale saladthis roasted cauliflower saladthis pomegranate saladthis beet salad, or this butternut squash salad. Not in the mood for salad? No problem. Here are a few more delicious ways to use this tahini dressing:

Tahini, dressing, lemon juice, sesame oil

Tahini Dressing Recipe Ingredients

Ready to make tahini salad dressing? You’ll need these simple ingredients:

  • 4 Tbsp Tahini – It makes up the dressing’s creamy base. For the best results, use really smooth, runny tahini here, not the dry, stiff stuff that you might find at the bottom of a jar. Tahini’s consistency can also vary from brand to brand; my favourites are Ceres and Chantals.
  • 1 fresh lemon squeezed – It makes the dressing nice and bright.
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil – It highlights the tahini’s rich, nutty flavour.
  • Garlic to taste – For sharp depth of flavour.
  • Maple syrup to taste – For balance! It tames the bright lemon juice and sharp garlic.
  • 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil – It adds body and richness.
  • And sea salt to taste – To make all the flavours pop!

Instructions

Add the ingredients to a small bowl along with 3 tablespoons of water, and whisk to combine.

As the dressing starts to come together, the tahini will seize up, and the sauce will thicken. Don’t worry about it! It’s totally normal. Keep whisking, and you’ll have a smooth, creamy tahini salad dressing in no time.

If the dressing is still thicker than you’d like it to be, add more water, 1/2 tablespoon at a time, until it reaches your desired consistency. Season to taste with more lemon juice, salt, maple syrup, or sesame oil, and enjoy!
