Creamy Tahini Dressing


Looks can be deceiving.SONY DSC

At first glance, you may think this container is brimming with a heart-clogging, cream-based dressing. A dressing that makes you feel guilty just by looking at it.

But there’s no need for guilt here, my friends. Go ahead and drench your veggies in this stuff!

I sure am.

Creamy Tahini Dressing
makes about 1 1/2 cups

Ingredients:

1/2 cup raw tahini
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (about 4 lemons)
1 clove garlic (or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder)
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup water, or more for desired consistency

Directions:

Combine all of the ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth and creamy. Add more water to thin, if desired.

(It will thicken up when it’s chilled!)

Serve generously over your favorite veggies, or as a delicious dip.

Creamy dressings were another thing I didn’t like as a kid.

It’s a good thing I grew up!

Better than Annie’s Goddess. I have been following you and making recipes that you post now for about a year. I added a little green onion. This was better than I expected. I ran out of my yogurt dill dressing I make and decided to try it. Some day I will make everything you post.

This is absolutely the BEST dressing ever… I have had it with two different salads and both tasted great. I used a a small chunk of red onion as i didnt have onion powder and still came out fantastic. The salad it tasted best with was a combo of red cabbage, white cabbage, lots of mint, lots of coriander, orange carrot and lots of chives. Delish with toasted almonds.

Way too much lemon juice!

I really loved this! I’ll probably add slightly less lemon for my own personal taste next time, but it was divine used as a dip for my sweet potato fries. Thank you! Love your recipes!

I love Tahini so I had to try this. I thought the Tahini taste was a little to strong so I added some maple syrup to this and it was just what it needed. Just poured it over a huge plate of veggies, delicious.

Just made this tahini with cashews (didn’t have the raw tahini on hand) and a handfull whole sesame seeds then blended in Vitamix till smooth and frothy. SOOOOOO good, I plan to wow my husband with it tonight 😉 Will be serving with roasted shawarma spiced veggies, I can’t wait for dinner! Another delicious recipe Megan, thanks!!!

Can you add balsamic vinegar to this dressing? I feel like I need to add something else besides water to make it not so thick. I LOVE it for a dip, I’m talking about for a salad dressing.

This dressing was so tasty and easy to make. I put it on a fried portabella mushroom, cherry tomato, and green bean dish. Planning to try it on salad since there is plenty left over. I wonder how long it lasts in the fridge.

Made this yesterday, stored it in the fridge overnight to let the flavors come together. Yum-o! Eating it right now and loving it. Thanks, Megan!
