  • ¼ cup tahini

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice, or more to taste

  • ¼ teaspoon salt, or to taste

  • 2 tablespoons warm water, or as needed


  1. Mix tahini, lemon juice, and salt in a bowl until smooth and well incorporated. Stir in warm water, 1 tablespoon at a time, to achieve a drizzling consistency. Adjust dressing with more salt or lemon juice as desired.

Cook's Notes:

To make a creamier dressing, you can add 1 to 2 tablespoons of vegan plant-based yogurt.

Using warm water instead of cold or room temperature water ensures the dressing is easier to stir and doesn't solidify.
