Just five simple ingredients come together to create the most addicting, delicious tahini dressing that's perfect for salads, sandwiches, wraps, bowls and more! (gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan)

  • juice from 1 lemon (about 1-2 tbsp)
  • 1 small clove garlic, grated or very finely minced
  • 4 tsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 3 tbsp warm water (more or less to taste)


  1. Finely mince, grate, or press the garlic. 
  2. In a jar, whisk together tahini, lemon juice, maple syrup, garlic and salt.  It will seize up. This is normal.

  4. Drizzle, dip and and pour on everything!


Store leftover dressing in the refrigerator in a sealed container up to 1 week.
