I firmly believe that a salad stands or falls with the dressing. And a good dressing can make your salad so incredibly delicious.
That's why I'm always happy about quick and delicious dressing recipes that are super easy to prepare. If you do not know what Tahini is, it is basically ground sesame seeds.
This dressing is a great alternative to a mayo-based dressing.
No matter how you want to use it, whether in a salad such as the Cobb salad or as a spread, veggie sauce or simply as a dip. Some might think creamy Tahini have a bitter taste, but with a good tahini (I am using the linked one) you will not taste the bitterness. You can even make homemade tahini.
Just put some roasted sesame seeds in a food processor and process until you get a paste.
Tahini Sauce Ingredients List
Now let's take a look at exactly which ingredients are in this dairy-free tahini dressing. As always, the exact quantities can be found below in the recipe card.
You will need simple ingredients that you probably have in your pantry.
Fresh Lemon Juice
Let's take a look at which ingredients we can exchange. Many ingredients are not included, so the substitution options will be smaller.
Red Wine Vinegar
If you have another vinegar at home, such as white wine vinegar, apple cider vinegar, raspberry vinegar, etc., you can use that one too.
It tastes so delicious with other types of vinegar, and it never gets boring.
For example, if you don't want to use salt now, but you want more flavor in your dressing, I recommend using vegetable broth.
You can use garlic powder instead of fresh garlic. First add ½ teaspoon and then taste.
Instead of lemon juice you can even use lime juice. I used already both in my recipe.
Now let's take a look at how you can adapt the recipe so that you can adapt it to different diets. This vegan tahini dressing with red wine vinegar is already gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free and oil-free.
If you want it to be salt-free now, I recommend adding a little lemon zest and adding herbs such as dill and celery powder to taste.
How to make lemon tahini dressing

This is how you have a salad dressing ready to serve. Shake the dressing just before you use it.
You really don't need a lot for the salad dressing. The dressing becomes super creamy in the high-performance blender.

Simple Green Salad
Are you wondering how long the tahini dressing lasts?
How to refrigerate it?
The tahini red wine vinegar dressing can be kept in the refrigerator in an airtight container like a Mason Jar for up to a week. We usually use it up within a week.
How to freeze it?
You can also freeze the dressing super great and then simply thaw it.
So you can freeze it in portions in ice cube trays. So you can portion it well and defrost it.
Tips for the best Tahini Dressing
You can of course also use a different nut butter, but then it is no longer a tahini dressing.
You can add more or less water, if you prefer a thinner or thicker consistency.
Depends on the Tahini you are using you might taste a hint of bitterness. I prefer this simple tahini.
Pay attention to the quality of the tahini. I use the above linked tahini. It is oil-free and consists only of sesame seeds.
Use cold water instead of warm water to make it super creamy.
If the dressing is a bit too bitter for you, which may be depending on the tahini used, add a little more vinegar to balance it out.
