Tasteful Tahini Salad Dressing

Tasteful Tahini Salad Dressing

Mishugana 2

"I hate mayo, but I love hummus and tahini. People are always asking for the recipe. The tahini gives it a Middle Eastern feel and the lemon, garlic, and ginger flavors really give it a kick! Easy to make, just needs a blender or a food processor. Experiment by adding a bit more lemon or a bit less garlic, or adding ground mint. Works well on anything, especially on simple salads."

We could not stop eating this! We had fondue and dipped everything from vegetables to meats, breads and crackers!

fantastic! I love how it is creamy without using dairy. I added a bit of lemon zest... really just for the scent (on my hands and in the dressing!) thanks

Super!! Made it as written and it was delicious. Great as a salad dressing or for dipping veggies. Wonderful for dipping Zukes and Cukes. thanks

This is excellent. I substituted dried ginger & garlic powder and used regular soy sauce instead of tamari, and it was still very good. I am sure it is even better as written. Makes a great d...

This was better than the salad dressing at my favorite middle eastern restaurant.

Very tasty!! I scaled the recipe down to half size as I didn't need quite so much. Still used 2 cloves of garlic and not quite as much olive oil as called for. I really enjoyed this - hubby n...

I surprised by all of the positive reviews. For me the tahini and ginger overwhelmed all of the other flavors. I tried to save it by increasing the other ingredients, but it was chalky nonethe...

I wouldn't change a thing--excellent as dressing, a sauce for veggies or beans, and even for pasta. Bravo!
