This tasty tahini dressing recipe takes 2 minutes to whisk up and works on anything! Drizzle on salads, bowl meals, and more. For more vegan dressings, scroll up.


  • ½ cup tahini
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup, honey or sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 5 tablespoons warm water


  1. Whisk together all ingredients, adding additional warm water if necessary to get it to come to a light and creamy consistency (this varies based on the texture of the tahini brand). Store up to 1 month refrigerated; bring to room temperature before serving (add a splash of water if it needs thinning out).
