Tahini Dressing

Our acclaimed tahini dressing/sauce recipe. You can make this in just minutes, and it's better than any bottled salad dressing.

Unbeatable on salads and an essential accompaniment to falafels or hummus, this recipe can be made in under five minutes. Plus, once you try this tahini dressing, you’ll never again be tempted to reach for dairy. It’s that good.


  • ¼ cup tahini (we recommend Al Wadi)
  • ¼ cup water
  • Juice of half a medium-sized lemon
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • Pinch of salt


Put all of the ingredients into a bowl and stir vigorously until creamy. This can take two solid minutes of mixing and you’ll see it combine to form a thick and creamy dressing. This recipe yields enough dressing for two large salads.
