the salad dressing experiment: tahini goddess dressing

Next up in the salad dressing experiment is this creamy, dreamy tahini goddess dressing.

This dressing will satisfy your craving for a creamy-based topping in a healthy and protein-packed way. All you need are some basic ingredients and a blender. Originally, I served this dressing with a simple spinach lettuce salad alongside vegetarian-based pizza. I figure the tahini gave this meal a needed extra hit of protein and healthy fats.

Ingredient line-up: apple cider vinegar, tahini, olive oil, coconut aminos (feel free to use soy sauce), garlic powder, dried parsley, and lemons.

Into the blender goes the tahini.

In goes the olive oil.

All the ingredients get tossed inside the blender.

Blend it up!

Ready for consumption.

Tahini Goddess Dressing (original recipe here)

1/2 cup tahini
1/2-1 cup water (depends on how thick you want it, I used 3/4 cup)
1/2 cup olive oil
5-6 T fresh lemon juice
2-3 T apple cider vinegar
2 T coconut aminos or soy sauce
2 T dried (or fresh) parsley

1/4 t garlic powder

Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend away! Enjoy.


  1. I love tahini-based dressings! This looks amazing.

  2. That sounds awesome - almost looks like a vegan Ceasar. Are they remotely close?

  3. I need to buy some tahini, it is one thing I grew up with but have yet to stock it in my apartment.

  4. I need to buy tahini, it's been on my grocery list for ages. This looks great

  5. Mmm, I love tahini-based dressings on spinach! Such a classic, creamy, perfect combo.

  6. Yum - I am a huge tahini dressing fan. How long does this stay good for in the fridge, usually?

  7. YUM- tahini is one of my favourite dressing ingredients!
