Honey-Tahini Dressing

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


  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup tahini, (see Tip)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste


Step 1
Combine lemon juice, oil, tahini, honey and garlic in a blender, a jar with a tight-fitting lid or a medium bowl. Blend, shake or whisk until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.


Tip: Tahini is a thick paste of ground sesame seeds. Look for it in large supermarkets in the Middle Eastern section or near other nut butters.
