This vegan lemon tahini dressing is perfect for a summer salad. No tasteless rabbit food (ahem, I mean salads) around here.


Units Scale

  • Zest 1 lemon
  • Fresh lemon juice (from zested lemon) + more if tastes bitter (I needed another lemon quarter)
  • 1/3 c tahini
  • 1/3 c warm water
  • Pinch salt
  • 1T rice wine vinegar
  • 1T agave (optional)


In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and whisk until smooth!

  • If too thick, add more water.
  • If too bitter, add more acid (recommend adding lemon juice by lemon quarters).
  • If too runny, add a little more tahini, but make sure to balance with more lemon juice or vinegar in teaspoon size increments.
