Tahini-Lemon-Honey Salad Dressing

tahini-honey-lemon-dip-2You can make this recipe even healthier by using organic and raw versions of all 3 ingredients, if you can find them.

This is great drizzled on a cool and crunchy salad of mild-tasting lettuce like iceberg, or even a soft salad, of red-oak leaf, lambs lettuce and round lettuce.

It can also be used as a sandwich (or toast) spread.  Or as dip, sprinkled with paprika and cold-pressed olive oil, with baked aubergine as per the photograph, yummy.

It is one of my two favourite dressings, and takes almost no time to prepare.

You will need:

A mug sized jar/ pot with a lid

1-2  tbsp tahini (I use light tahini, You could also try almond butter, white almond butter, or hemp seed butter).

1 tablespoon lemon (don’t use too much lemon, it will really over power the flavour)

Raw cold-pressed honey (use agave or maple syrup for a vegan version) to taste


  • Combine all the ingredients in the jar, add the lid, shake, taste and adjust flavours accordingly, deelicious :)

Store in the fridge.

Should last sometime, It has never made it as far as it’s shelf life in my fridge :)
