  • ¼ cup tahini
  • 1.5 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1.5 tablespoons lemon juice
  • water to thin out 2-4 tablespoons
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Shake together all ingredients. Start with 2 tablespoons water and add more as needed to thin out.


Dressing may be stored in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
Use it on
  • Buddha Bowls
  • Roasted or Raw Vegetables
  • Kale or Spinach Salad
  • Falafels
  • Wraps, Pitas or Sandwiches
  • swap the maple syrup for honey or coconut sugar
  • swap the lemon for lime juice
  • add in some spices; cinnamon, turmeric, garlic (powder or freshly pressed) are all great choices
  • add in some chia seeds for an imitation poppyseed dressing. You'd probably need to serve this fresh before the chia seeds absorb too much moisture and thicken
