Recipe: Citrus Tahini Dressing

Trying to pack in your greens but getting tired of the same olive oil vinaigrette dressing? Tahini is a sesame seed paste similar in taste to a natural peanut butter, and it adds a punch of protein to your salads (9 grams in 2 tablespoons.) If you’re trying to find a substitute for the creamy texture of ranch, this dressing may make the cut. Combine the sweetness of orange juice and a kick of ginger, and you’ve got a companion to coat thick kale leaves or tender spinach. We made a fun infographic for your reference!


Citrus Tahini Dressing (makes about 2/3 cup)

  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1.5 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • ½ sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon walnut or olive oil


Using a standing blender or an immersion blender and deep cup or jar, puree all the ingredients (starting with 2 tablespoons of the agave nectar/maple syrup, until fully smooth and creamy. Add additional sweetener to taste, if desired. Makes about 2/3 cup.

Which is correct? The picture version or the printed version because they don’t seem to match?
