Lemon Tahini Dressing

BySarah Axtell, ND May 28, 2020

Sometimes you just need a creamy dressing. Oil and vinegar gets boring so this is where tahini comes in. Tahini is sesame seed butter (often a main ingredient in hummus). Tahini is a great source of calcium (yes, despite what the USDA would like you to believe, you can get calcium from other sources besides cow milk). It is also rich in magnesium and vitamin E and a good source of protein.

You can find tahini in the peanut butter section at your health food store.

Top your salad, roasted veggies, rice, or quinoa with this dressing. Or use it as a dip with raw veggies or Flackers.


  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 1 medium lemon, juiced
  • 1 TBSP honey or maple syrup
  • 1 clove garlic (omit if you follow a Low FODMAP diet)
  • 1/3 cup water
  • Sea salt to taste


Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until thoroughly mixed.
