This dressing is a refreshing change from my usual ranch and Caesar. It is flavorful, creamy and easy to make. I found this recipe from Catherine at Plant-Based RD (linked below).


  • 1/4 cup tahini

  • Juice of half a lemon (1 tbsp lemon juice)

  • 2 teaspoons tamari

  • 1 teaspoon yellow or white miso paste

  • 2–3 teaspoons maple syrup

  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced

  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger powder or 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • 2–3 tablespoons cold water


To a small bowl, add tahini, lemon juice, tamari, miso, maple syrup, garlic, ginger and mustard.

Whisk to combine until a thick consistency is achieved, then slowly pour in your water one tablespoon at a time while whisking until you reach your desired creamy salad dressing consistency.

Adjust the flavor of your dressing to your preference by adjusting the tang with more lemon juice or mustard, the sweetness with more maple syrup or a pinch of salt and pepper to taste.
