Homemade tahini salad dressing is so easy to make that you’ll never want to buy storebought dressing again! It’s lightly garlicky and lemon-y and perfectly creamy.
What is a salad without a delicious salad dressing? I often buy Annie’s Goddess dressing from the store, (not to be confused with green goddess dressing!), but when I have some forethought or a little extra time I love to make homemade goddess dressing.
This recipe is my twist on the original Annie’s dressing, making it a goddess style tahini dressing, AKA the best kind of salad dressing!
Tahini goddess dressing is a healthy salad dressing that’s free from added sugars. It’s lemon-y, lightly garlicky, and packed with flavor. The creaminess in this vegan salad dressing comes from tahini, which is made from toasted sesame seeds. Yummm!
How to make homemade tahini salad dressing
Making homemade salad dressing is a great way to make your salads a little healthier. It’s seriously amazing how quick and easy it is to whip up a dressing!
Just combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. You can add 1 tablespoon at a time of water for a thinner texture, or keep it as is. The dressing will thicken when it’s refrigerated; add a splash of water to thin before serving.
When you make your own salad dressings you get to customize the dressing to your liking:
Prefer a dressing that’s a little less garlicky? Great, cut down on the garlic cloves.
Looking for a little extra kick? Try a dash of hot sauce!
