I love tahini. It’s like a savory version of peanut butter – what’s not to love? Usually I just use it in hummus, but I wanted to create some kind of dressing to use with salad or for dipping.
This simple tahini dressing is super easy to make and only requires 4 ingredients – though you can always spruce it up with some spices like cumin, coriander, or cayenne if you want a little more punch.
- 1/4 c. tahini
- 2 T. lemon juice (juice of 1 lemon)
- 1/4 c. water
- 1 clove garlic
Blend together until smooth. Refrigerate (will thicken after refrigerating).
I used this as a sauce drizzled over an open-faced turkey and tomato sandwich, as a dip for some collard wraps, and as a salad dressing.
What are some of your favorite ways to use tahini? Do you have any baked recipes that incorporate it?
