I’m a big fan of tahini- ever since I tried Annie’s Goddess Salad Dressing back in college, I’ve been hooked on it. Years later, I’ve finally gotten around to making my own tahini dressing!

Tahini is roasted sesame puree- think the peanut butter of sesame seeds. It is often a key ingredient in hummus and many mediterranean dishes. This simple dressing is paired with lots of citrus, fresh herbs and garlic to compliment any salad lucky enough to get dressed in its’ yumminess!

Herbed Tahini Dressing

  • Author: Robyn


  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Juice of 3 lemons
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt (to taste).
  • Handful of fresh herbs (I used basil and oregano and they played off the citrus perfectly!)


Combine all ingredients with an immersion blender until they are unified. Add more salt if needed to suit your palate!

NOTE: Until I made this dressing, I've never seen my husband have second helpings of salad! He was dipping his bread in the dressing too. I hope you equally enjoy!
