Honey-Tahini Dressing

March/April 2009

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (60 votes)

Extra-virgin olive oil and lemon juice are the backbone of this dressing, but it gets a unique toasty flavor from tahini.

Great dressing

I have to agree that there is no need to add additional oil but it does not detract from the fact that this is a great dressing. Some fats are important to assimilate certain vitamins so I don't think it hurts to add a little. My tahini comes seprated so I just skim some of the oil off the top and mix it in.
I also use agave instead of honey. I like it better than the honey flavor and it is a little lower on the glycemic index. I also pinch open a cayenne capsule and sprinkle a little in my dressing. If I have any leftover hummus, I add it to the dressing as well. Since the dressing is mostly tahini, that is the flavor and texture that is predominant but hummus adds even more nutrition.
I always like to see how others make their dressings and change it up from time to time. : )

delicious, easy to make, nutritious

@ hrbdoctr. There are good and bad fats. Mainstream media has everyone convinced they're all bad and a low fat diet is "healthy". The fact is the average person doesn't get enough good fat.

honey tahini dressing

i found this recipe under the title, HEALTHY SALAD DRESSINGS. how can one tablespoon of a dressing equalling six grams of fat be healthy?

i never could figure out why people use olive oil AND tahini. tahini itself has so much oil in it there is no need to add more.

why not try water instead?
