My homemade Lemon Tahini Dressing recipe is a kitchen game changer you must make!
For some reason I had shied away from buying tahini for years. I thought it was an indulgent, fancy, hard to find ingredient that no one actually cooked with. Then I fell in love with a Tahini dressing at one of my favorite local green eateries. I couldn’t get enough of it, so in normal food blogger fashion I got over myself and decided I needed to try to make it at home.
I was shocked that it was actually pretty easy to get the tahini at a regular ole grocery store. I even found it on Amazon. <— affiliate link
Homemade Lemon Tahini Dressing Recipe
In no time I whipped up my own homemade Lemon Tahini Dressing recipe…. and GUUUUYYYSSSSS….
Holy moly is it GOOOOODDDDD.
The dressing is simply made with lemon, tahini, olive oil, garlic and a little water to thin it out. Yup, it’s only 4 ingredients which makes it a total winner in my book.
My homemade Lemon Tahini Dressing recipe tastes amazing on salads of all kinds but is also a spectacular topping for grain and buddha bowls. It basically is the SECRET SAUCE to make most vegetarian or vegan food even better. I’m a little sad I hadn’t figured this out a decade ago.
You have to believe me that this is totally crave worthy and a game changer in the kitchen. Now one bottle of tahini might seem a little pricy, but you only use two tablespoons at a time so it goes a long way. As a former tahini skeptic, I can totally say it’s worth the purchase.
Make a batch for a salad today and coming up on Thursday I’m going to share with you my favorite grilled vegetable buddha bowl for summer. It uses this homemade Lemon Tahini Dressing recipe as a topping and will be one of your favorite recipes of the summer, I promise!
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. Click over for the full recipe and pinable. —->
