A fantastic dressing recipe is sometimes very hard to find! Sure, you can use your usual vinaigrette or a boring bottle from the grocery store, but is that what you really want? Wouldn’t you be more satisfied with something fresh, homemade, and absolutely spoon-licking, like this delicious, vegan cilantro tahini dressing?
I don’t know about you, but I am addicted to tahini. It’s so incredibly creamy with a super sesame seed aftertaste that has you going back for more…and more! Imagine adding to that a touch of tangy, tart lemon juice, savory spices, and a tiny bit of sweet and salty flavor. Absolute heaven!
There are so many ways to use this appetizing dressing to your advantage. Our Cilantro Tahini Dressing is literally delicious on anything––and everything!
Once you make this cool and creamy sauce, you’ll be hooked––and hungry! Of course, you can always adjust the spice level to make it your own: add more or less ginger, call in some cayenne or crushed red pepper, and maybe surprise yourself with a wee bit of wasabi. But, I think you’ll fall in love (at first taste) with this fabulous dressing as is.
Pour any of your leftover vegan Cilantro Tahini dressing into a mason jar with a lid and refrigerate. This dressing will easily last 3 days and, if it’s too thick after that time, just add a little bit of warm water and shake well.
A good idea to make a double (or triple!) batch so you can share it with your family (unless you’re selfish like me and eat it all yourself on numerous salads) and have enough to last the entire week. There are so many ways you can use this delicious dressing that I promise you’ll wish you had made more in the beginning!
