Lemon Tahini Salad Dressing

"Delicious over mixed greens. Add cucumbers and radishes if you like. I found the dressing to be a bit runny, so make sure your tahini is rich and full, if not, don't add as much water. Either way, the taste is yummy and not your ordinary dressing. As chef blucoat chef #225426 so eloquently pointed out, this recipe comes from Gourmet 2002. I had written it down on a deposit slip and failed to note where it came from. Thanks Blucoat."

  • Mix ingredients in a blender ( or be lazy like me and put all ingredients in a safely secured jar and shake like the dickens. I didn't add additional water) adding more water to create the thickness you like, chill at least 3 hours.

    This is a delicious dressing goes really well with meatballs and felafel too. I omit the honey cos I like the bite of the lemon. Made for ZWT6 thank you

    I made this dressing last minute and didn't chill for 3 hours. It was delicious. Think this will be my go to dressing.

    Exceptionally delicious dressing that made my husband and I lick our plates! :-) Very easy too, although next time I'll cut back on the water for a thicker consistency I prefer.

    After falling in love with a Tahini Lemon dressing at my local health food store, I decided to try it out myself. I wanted to love this dressing, but for some reason it came out as gritty which I simply could not love. The dressing in the health food store was not gritty at all, it was creamy and smooth, so I wonder if it was the cayenne? I'm not really a major fane of cayenne anyway.<br/>Taste... well, it wasn't quite what I was looking for, and if it wasn't gritty, I still wouldn't make it again. I followed the recipe exactly. Sorry. :(
