This Tahini Dressing Recipe is a rich creamy sauce made with sesame paste (aka tahini), lemon juice, a little bit of hot water, and garlic. It is a delicious dressing recipe sauce that is perfect for topping salads, dipping veggies, and to drizzle over some homemade falafel.
What Is Tahini
Tahini is sesame butter, also known as sesame paste. It is made by grinding sesame seeds into a paste. Tahini has a bitter taste on it’s own and is complemented by adding acid (such as lemon juice) salt, and seasonings such as garlic.
It is mostly used in Mediterranean style recipes and best known for making a tahini dressing recipe that goes great over top of a falafel filled pita sandwich! Tahini is also used to make hummus (my fav is this Roasted Red Pepper Hummus), and can be used in sweet recipes as well, such as Tahini Brownies.
