Half or quarter the recipe for less, but I bet you'll wish you didn't!


  • 1 cup tahini
  • 1-2 clove garlic ((or to taste))
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sesame oil (TOASTED sesame oil is preferred)
  • 4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar (can also use red wine vinegar)
  • 5-6 stalks green onions ((to taste))
  • 2-3 tablespoons lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
  • 2-3 tablespoons soy sauce ((to taste))
  • 1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds
  • salt + pepper ((to taste))


We use this dressing on all kinds of salads and it is also delicious as a dip. You can drizzle it on a falafel sandwich, dip some spanikopita in it, dress a fresh spinach salad with it or add it to a rice /veggie bowl!


Step 1 Add all ingredients to a blender, hand blender or food processor.
Step 2 Mix until smooth...remember you have green onion and garlic in there!
Step 3 Taste. Add water/vinegar/lemon juice or soy sauce if it's too thick or to perk up the flavour. Add more tahini if it's too thin...but only a bit at a time.
Step 4 Pour into mason jars or recycled salad dressing bottles and store in the fridge.
