Vegan Lemon Tahini Dressing

Lemon Tahini Dressing

  • Total Time: 5
  • Yield: about 1 cup 1x


Super easy vegan lemon tahini dressing that can be used on salad, grain bowls, or as a dip! This dressing only has 6 ingredients (and legit one of them is water) and comes together in just five minutes.


  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 6 tablespoons tahini (be sure you buy tahini, not sauce or dressing)
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons water, plus a bit more
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled


  1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender (or you can just whisk together after finely chopping the garlic). Process until smooth, then taste. Add a bit more water for a thinner consistency, and some more salt or a pinch of sugar if needed.
  2. Store in a sealed jar or container in the fridge for several days.


If the dressing thickens in the fridge, thin it out with a bit more water and/or allow it to come to room temp before using. It'll relax!

Meal Prep Hack! Use this for shortcut hummus right after you make the dressing for a one-two meal prep punch.

Then, for extra credit, throw some spiced ground meat over your hummus and make a big Mediterranean hummus board. Dinner is handled!
