In the past year it’s come to my attention that I have a serious love for tahini… or more like Peter brought it to my attention:)

I was telling someone we go through about 1 jar a month.  He quickly reminded me it’s more like 1 jar a week! 2 weeks if we are lucky! Ya that actually sounds more accurate.

No surprise as I would pick it over almond butter or peanut butter any day!

But it didn’t start out that way, I used to think it was really strong tasting, and I could only use a little bit.

Now I lick the spoon, always:)

If you have some tahini in your fridge you should make this dressing AND salad right away.

Now if you don’t have any tahini in your refrigerator, I suggest Soom Foods Tahini.

You might recognize Soom from THIS Nut Butter Post… we went crazy for their Chocolate Sesame Butter (chocolate tahini, um yes!).

I really love this brand and think this tahini is perfect, as it’s not too strong of a flavor and has a really nice, smooth consistency.

So get your Tahini out and let’s put it to good use!!

Tahini Salad Dressing
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 2 large servings
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • 2 Tbsp. dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. coconut sugar
  • water to thin out (this will depend on how thick your tahini is, but keep dressing on the thick side)
  • 1 dash sea salt
  • 1 head of lettuce
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • ¼ cup fresh mint
  • 1 cup pinto beans
  • 2 radishes
  • 1 apple
  • 1 avocado
  1. Make dressing by mixing all dressing ingredients together in a food processor or by hand in a glass bowl. Add water at your discretion (with the Soom Tahini you shouldn't really need any).
  2. Make salad by washing and chopping all salad ingredients and placing in a large bowl.
  3. To make the salad more interesting try cutting vegetables in different shapes. We love using a cheese grater for shredding zucchini and carrots.

      Hi. Congrats on your marriage by the way! Glad you two finally tied the knot! Question- I have tahini butter- is there a difference?

    • Sarah

      Thanks Dina:) Yes Tahini butter is the same thing and will work well. You may have to pre-stir it as it tends to be on the thicker side. Happy Salad Eating!
