Course Salad Dressing
Prep Time 2 minutes
Total Time 2 minutes
Servings 2


  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 4 tbsp water, boiling hot (Note 1)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice, room temperature
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together tahini and hot water. It may take up to 1 – 2 minutes for the mixture to come together.
  2. Add lemon juice and salt, and whisk thoroughly. (Note 2)
  3. Use as a salad dressing, or as a dip for cut-up vegetables. The tahini salad dressing keeps well in a closed container in the fridge for 3 – 4 days. (Note 3)

Recipe Notes

Note 1: The recipe as written gives a very creamy salad dressing. If you require the dressing to be more runny/pourable, add one additional tbsp of hot water.

Note 2: If the mixture initially looks like it has split, continue whisking, and it will come together.

Note 3: If you want to use the tahini salad dressing after it had been in the fridge, let it come to room temperature before using. If it's too thick, add 1 tbso of hot water and whisk thoroughly.
