Tahini Green Goddess
This vegan tahini green goddess dressing is simple to make at home and can be found in many health food stores and restaurants. If you like store-bought goddess dressings, this one with tahini, lemon juice, and parsley will be a hit. Unlike traditional green goddess dressing, it is free of eggs and dairy.
Aside from dressing a green salad, this goddess dressing can be used in a variety of ways. Use it to make coleslaw instead of mayonnaise, to dress plain steamed vegetables, and to make cold pasta salads with leftover pasta. As a dip for plain veggies like carrot sticks and cucumbers, it’s a great substitute for ranch dressing.
Special diets can be easily accommodated with simple substitutions. Use gluten-free tamari instead of soy sauce if you need it to be gluten-free. If you want to make it sugar-free, leave out the agave nectar or sugar. However, the sugar adds an extra layer of flavor to make it truly unique (and it’s only a slight hint).
What Is Tahini?
Tahini is a paste made from ground toasted sesame seeds. It is often used in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine.
If you have a blender or food processor, making homemade salad dressings is a breeze. A manual hand-crank egg beater is the second-best option. You’ll have to do a lot of stirring by hand if you don’t have any of these tools.
What Is The Best Way To Keep Tahini Green Goddess?
Store in the fridge the dressing in a sealed jar. It’s best if you use it within seven days of preparing it. When the olive oil and tahini are refrigerated, the dressing thickens, but when warmed to room temperature, it thins out. Running the container under hot water will help it liquefy and be ready to use.
A creamy Green Goddess Dressing makes the perfect savory sauce for nearly any dish or appetizer you want to jazz up, and it’s just in time for the warmer weather days! Here are a few of my favorite ways to savor this bright, herbaceous delight:
- Serve with chips, crudités (a fancy term for sliced raw veggies served for dipping! ), or even homemade buffalo cauliflower as a tasty dip!
- As a rich salad dressing or in colorful grain bowls
- In sandwiches, burritos, and even tacos as a creamy drizzle!
Looking to add some variety to your weekly meal prep? This versatile sauce is great for making ahead of time because it keeps for up to 7 days in the fridge!
