This super easy lemon tahini dressing is made with only 3 ingredients (plus water and salt) and goes great with salads, buddha bowls, roasted veggies, wraps and vegetarian burgers or falafel. 



1/4 cup tahini (I use unhulled)

2 tbsp lemon juice

3-4 tbsp warm water*

1 small garlic clove

Pinch of salt to taste


  1. Combine all the ingredients and blend with a hand blender
  2. Add more water if needed to achieve a runny consistency


  • Using warm water instead of cold will help achieve a more liquid consistency
  • You can store in the fridge in a glass jar up to five days
  • If you store it in the fridge the consistency will be less creamy. Add more hot water right before using it.
  • This recipe can either be a dressing or a dip. Play around with the amount of water to make it thicker or runnier.
