My homemade Lemon Tahini Dressing recipe is a kitchen game changer you must make!

Hi everyone!

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

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 have a jar of tahini. I need to try this. I’ve always been a little reluctant to use tahini, but I think I need to try it in a dressing.

    This sounds so tasty. I always think making your own dressing is so time consuming but it really isn’t. I guess I’m just being lazy.
