Savory Tahini Dressing

Have you tried a tahini based salad dressing yet? Tahini makes a great base for dressings and sauces. It gives you a rich texture and flavor without needing any oil at all. If you like your dressings a little on the sweeter side, then try my Maple Tahini Dressing. But if your looking for something a little more savory with a garlic kick, then give this one a try. This is great on salads, but I prefer it drizzled over steamed broccoli. I can't wait to try it with cooked kale, the possibilities for this dressing are endless!

Savory Tahini Dressing


1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup low sodium tamari or soy sauce
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
2-3 cloves minced garlic
1/8 cup water, depending on the consistency of your tahini


Blend all ingredients except for the water in a blender (or food processor) until smooth. You could also just whisk all the ingredients in a bowl.  Add water until desired consistency is reached. I used 1/8 cup water and my dressing stayed quite thin and was perfect over steamed vegetables.
