Tahini Balsamic Dressing

You can use Tahini Balsamic Dressing in a variety of ways:

  • When I make salad for the boys, I combine cubed cheese, diced apple and cucumber and top it with this dressing. Children can be a little wary of lettuce but they love this simple salad.
  • This also makes a great dressing for a quinoa salad. I highly recommend it.
  • Use as a hummus topper. Just drizzle a generous amount of dressing over a bowl of hummus to add an extra zing of flavour. So good.

How to Make Tahini Balsamic Dressing

You only need these ingredients to make this delicious dressing: tahini, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, grainy dijon mustard, maple syrup, salt and pepper.

Making your own dressing at home is a simple habit that will greatly increase the nutritional value of your salads. Store-bought dressings often contain canola oil or other unhealthy oils, sugar or extra additives to prolong the shelf life. 

Pour all the ingredients into an 8 oz mason jar and shake until thoroughly mixed. Taste the dressing and adjust for seasoning if necessary. Store in the fridge for freshness and use within 5-7 days.  Enjoy!

Tips for Making Balsamic Tahini Dressing

  • Stir tahini well. Tahini needs to be stirred just like natural peanut butter. It’s important to make sure it’s mixed well to achieve the right consistency for the dressing.
  • Store in the fridge for freshness.  I recommend taking it out of the fridge 10 minutes before using so the dressing is pourable.
  • Use this dressing up within 5-7 days.
  • Always use good quality olive oil. Look for extra virgin olive oil in a dark glass bottle which will protect the oil from oxidation from light.

Hi! I’m Christy, a happy wife and mother to three boys, a nutritionist, a food lover and a Canadian. Creating and experimenting in the kitchen is my idea of an afternoon well spent. To me, a clean kitchen is an empty canvas of possibility and that means my kitchen never stays clean for long. My dream is that one or more of the recipes I share here will inspire you, perhaps even becoming a cherished family favourite.
