Recipe: Tahini Sauce

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.

Tahini Sauce
  • 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?

    This sounds like a great salad dressing!

  5. I’ve actually never had tahini in my kitchen, or even *tried* it for that matter. Crazy but true. You’ve inspired me to pick up a bottle though. This sounds fabulous. πŸ˜€
