    Serves: 6 

    • 4 tablespoons tahini
    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste

    Prep:3min  ›  Ready in:3min 

    1. Mix together all ingredients until smooth and well incorporated. Begin stirring in warm water, about a tablespoon at a time, to achieve a drizzling consistency. Taste and add more salt or lemon juice, if desired.


    To make a creamier dressing, you can add 1 to 2 tablespoons of vegan plant-based yoghurt.
    Using warm water instead of cold or room temperature water ensures the dressing is easier to stir and doesn't solidify.

    To the reviewer saying this dressing needs yogurt ... it's vegan, so it will taste differently from a dressing that uses traditional yogurt. Maybe a soy yogurt would add another tangy flavor to add to the lemon.... I loved this dressing as-is. Once I had added enough water to thin it out I needed to add a bit more lemon. Next time I'll also use lemon zest, and probably paprika.  -  03 Oct 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was okay but it needed something. I don't know what but it needed something for sure. I made a similar recipe from this site on the same night that called for Greek yogurt and it was definitely the better of the two. I recommend adding some of that and then maybe an herb of some sort. Again, it was okay but not great.  -  26 Feb 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
