This delicious homemade tahini salad dressing is a family favorite! If you’re familiar with Annie’s Naturals Goddess Dressing, you’ll absolutely love the beautiful flavors captured by this tahini salad dressing made from scratch. Here at home salad is included with every dinner and is often enjoyed at lunchtime too. I enjoy putting together gorgeous-looking salads. For me, salad creation is a bit of an art. My salads are never boring. I like to change things up by adding different ingredients depending on the season. But something that never changes is my love for my sister-in-law Jennie’s scrumptious recipe for Tahini Salad Dressing. It’s a true gem!

Bouquets of thanks to sweet Jennie for allowing me to share her fabulous tahini salad dressing recipe with you today. I find that the most incredibly flavorful recipes are those that are shared among family. Over the years we accumulate a small set of truly special recipes that have stood the test of time. They’re the ones that are requested time and again at family gatherings. It’s these precious, cherished recipes that we pass on to our children, and they to their children. This flavorful tahini salad dressing is one of those recipes. It’s counted among our family’s secret treasures. Now, thanks to Jennie, it can be your family’s too! There are only a few small differences between this recipe and the original salad dressing recipe made from scratch. I added in a sprinkling of delightful black pepper and a bit of sea salt. If you’re not familiar with tahini, it may be a little hard to locate in a grocery store when shopping for it for the first time. They will have it at your local market, but you may need to ask your grocer for some assistance with finding it on the shelf. Where I shop it was located near the organic maple syrup. You can also conveniently order tahini directly from Amazon.

We love engaging in long relaxed visits, catching up on each other’s lives and sharing a meal. When I’m hosting the family gathering here at the house, my husband’s oldest brother and his wife Jennie always ask what they can bring. Our answer is alway the same: a loaf of artisan bread, a large salad, and Jennie’s famous homemade tahini salad dressing.

I absolutely love my nested glass mixing bowls. They come in handy for so many uses. I purchased my set at Crate and Barrel, but you can find a similar set on Amazon. Today I used the largest mixing bowl to serve my colorful salad. I used a much smaller mixing bowl to whip together the tahini salad dressing ingredients. For me it’s important that any kitchen tool I have can be used in many different ways.

I love my flat-bottom whisk that I purchased from The Pampered Chef. Above is another lovely flat-bottom whisk that’s perfect for mixing your tahini salad dressing. I bought my glass cruet at Home Goods, but here is a similar set of salad dressing dispensers with stoppers.

  1. I love tahini dressing and can’t wait to try your version. The color alone sells it!

    Question: Can you provide a link to those salad dressing cruets with stoppers? I’d love to have a set like those!

  2. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! As a Southern Woman, I tend to get stuck in a rut – making the same recipes that my mother, her mother, and HER mother have always made. We get stuck and we get bored. Then, food is no longer something to enjoy. With this awesome recipe, I was able to break out of my rut and not make my boys flip out, either! This was so yummy and now I have something new in my pantry to make even more delicious recipe with – tahini!
