Oil Free Lemon-Tahini Salad Dressing

I love lemon & tahini flavored dressings/sauces! I decided to create a dressing for my salads after looking at several different recipes online. I wanted to create an oil-free recipe because I’m not a fan of oily dressings (vinaigrettes). If I can create a recipe without oil & still have it taste great, then I would prefer oil-free instead!


This salad I made has a bed of Arugula salad greens, diced tomatoes, sliced almonds & roasted curry chicken breast. Looking at this salad makes me want to eat it again. It was SO simple & easy to throw together, my kind of meal!


Recipe Makes: 16 servings (2 tbsp per serving)

– 1/2 cup unsalted tahini
– 1/2 cup lemon juice (fresh or bottled works, although I prefer fresh)
– 1/2 cup water
– 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
– 1/2 tsp salt
– 1/2 tsp garlic powder
– Pepper to taste

1. Mix everything together & mix desired amount into salad.
2. Store the rest in an airtight container & refrigerate.
