Luscious Homemade Tahini Goddess Dressing

Some days you just want a salad, right? You know, those crisp fresh vegetables full of hydrating water and loaded with vitamins & enzymes? I don’t know about you guys (I have my suspicions though) but I am always pretty thrilled to have a homemade salad dressing hanging out in the fridge that makes it easy to wash a few raw vegetables and dress them to perfection.

This recipe is made in honour of a very popular bottled salad dressing. Anyone out there familiar with a store-bought version of the ever-popular Goddess dressing?I’ve never been a fan of bottled anything – so one day a few weeks back I decided to make my own version of a popular favourite. Here is the result! I’ve got a secret…it’s better (IMO) than anything you can buy in a bottle!

Utilizing tahini in salad dressings has always been a popular trick with vegans. This paste made of hulled sesame seeds is satisfying and filling, not to mention full of calcium and protein – two things vegans (and all folks really) need.Here I added soy sauce, dried parsley, oil, vinegar, lemon juice, and granulated garlic – all easy things you probably have in your pantry already. It keeps well, eats well, and can easily be tailored to your tastes and preferences.


Luscious Homemade Tahini Goddess Dressing:

(1/2-1 cup) water (depending on desired thickness)
1/2) cup good olive oil
(5-6) tbsp fresh lemon juice (can substitute bottled lemon juice too)
(2-3) tbsp apple cider vinegar (to taste based on the lemon juice)
(2) tbsp Braggs or soy sauce
(2) tbsp dried or fresh parsley
(1/4) tsp granulated garlic or garlic powder

Combine all ingredients in a blender (or in a bowl for use with a hand blender) and blend until creamy and emulsified.Taste to correct seasonings (use the lesser amount of water, lemon, and vinegar and add as desired).

Transfer dressing to a clean jar and refrigerate. This should keep well for up to a week, and perhaps longer if you use bottled lemon juice. It will thicken in the fridge a little and makes a fabulous dip.A little goes a long way and this dressing is jam-packed with flavour!

Veggie salads are a great way to load up on fibre and roughage, not to mention a fabulous vehicle for a great dressing like this!享受浇筑的味料般的谷物,各种蒸蔬菜。这也将使烤土豆楔子畅游,甚至作为蛋黄酱三明治或汉堡替代品。用它到你的心灵的内容!

  1. Okay, dying to hear about the armpit…. I’m all over a tahini cream I’ve been making at the moment it was in my post today. Your dressing seems like it has more depth, which I love so I’ll have to give it a test run! xx

    1. 哈!我知道Somer,这有点荒谬......但是真的人们真的可以与之相关!你的tahini奶油看起来(当然)超级美味与那个汤,惊人!我们如何总是设法思考类似的东西?

  2. 我很期待尝试这个问题。很久以前,西雅图有一个名为Graigity Bar的西雅图,包括伟大的素食票价,包括一堆叫做RV1,RV2,RV3等的组合,R&V为米饭和蔬菜站立。每个组合都有一个不同的扭曲和神话般的酱汁。我最喜欢的是基本上是一个奎奴亚藜沙拉,吨生胡萝卜,羽衣甘蓝,辣椒和其他脆脆的蔬菜 - 配上柠檬 - 天丽酱。我尝试了几次,并不能再对我的满意度来重新创造它。但我觉得你已经为我打扮了。谢谢!!

    1. I love the idea of RV1, RV2 et al. What a cool concept. Like Emmy, I reckon your dressing will rock, lovely S! Another winner from my favourite Canadian!

      Have a super swell weekend, yourself (I love that expression of yours)

      1. 谢谢J!So happy to be someones favorite Before I met you I’d no clue really what awesomeness existed in your part of the world either….looking forward to having you back on the blog scene! XO

    2. That restaurant sounds amazing Emmy! I too am loving that idea (that is kind of the best meal ever and there endless combos). I hope this one hits the spot! I thought it did the trick nicely..I’d love to hear your variation on it

  3. This looks absolutely delectable! I also love the Eckhart Tolle–it captures so many tumultuous situations so perfectly. Thank you for sharing your insight with us, as always–I can’t wait to give this recipe a try.

  4. Hope all is well with your armpit. I make my own salad dressings, but have stayed away from creamy ones, because I never bothered to look up how to make them. This looks quick and easy enough to give a try. Now I just have to make some roasted tahini.

    1. 这是一个简单的一个,真的很好地融合 - 我对你留下了深刻的印象,让你自己的tahini ......你是为了一个享受的赫迪!

  5. tahini dressings are amongst my all time favourites!! like u said.. a good dressing can make vegetables sing! there is nothing worse than a sour, too acidic bbbaaaaad dressing on your salad. this looks more than delicious! I used to make a similar dressing but subbed the sesame seeds with sunflower seeds. so great with the parsley!

    1. Of course! I’ve really enjoyed that recipe and am looking forward to trying more awesome things with it – thanks for the link, I was really happy you shared that!

  6. 我喜欢塔希尼的敷料。我不使用水,只有很多柠檬汁,一点酱油(1茶匙?),新鲜的大蒜,也许几滴蜂蜜拿走边缘。我们的柠檬通常是Meyer Lemons,比典型的商业更甜蜜。

    1. 这听起来很棒的Sharyn,我和你在一起 - 我喜欢很多柠檬(特别是与地中海食物)..我嫉妒你对迈耶柠檬的进入!他们太好了

  7. 我喜欢女神敷料,但停止买它,因为我不认为这是值得的$$$。另外,像你一样,我倾向于制作自己的敷料(由evoo制成:evoo,布拉格苹果酒Vin,大蒜和灰色p. mustard)。我是SOOOOOOOOOOO尝试你的食谱。感谢您的发表!

    P.s. I was informed of your blog by one of my favorite bloggers? Somer @http://vedgedout.com/

  8. The title has the words “luscious” and “goddess”, seriously how bad can it be? I tried once a recipe that a Lebanese friend gave me, roasting cauliflower with tahini in the oven. I loved it. I think this dip would work as well. It sounds delicious and the suggestions are great!

    1. I’m glad you picked up on that Villy I mean really, with those words it’s got to be good! I’d LOVE to try your roasted cauliflower recipe, that sounds amazing!

  9. I pretty much live on salads with tahini dressing and this one looks fab. Definitely one to try. Your photos & quotes are gorgeous and inspiring as ever, too.

  10. Yuuum yum homemade dressing! I have only tried one of the Goddess dressings and it was a while ago. I remember not being the biggest fan of it. I need to try some more, or better yet I need to make THIS one!

  11. Oh, this looks terrific! And I have a garden groaning with Kale and other salad-y delights, so I shall try this out for lunch. Perfect timing. Thank you.
    PS我爱你所有的伟大报价 - 他们真的让我的心唱歌。祝福xx.

    1. 谢谢!我希望你的午餐很精彩(我今天会给一个新的羽衣甘蓝沙拉喝点) - 很高兴能拥有你!周末愉快!Bless back xx

  12. 我没有听说过“芝麻酱女神”酱之前e reading your post…I mixed it up last night and WOW… dressed a bit of Kale and quinoa with it and let it sit overnight…adding the last of the garden tomatoes and cucumbers with a spot of goat cheese today. Srsly!!! – THE best kale dressing I’ve tried (I do make all my own). I had raw tahini, not toasted and it was still good – I can only imagine the oomph that the toasted brings to the dressing.

    Super-duper! – Thank you.

    1. That’s so wonderful Liz! I am so happy you shared that – I read your comment when it came in and you inspired me to serve the rest of the dressing I had on hand with shredded kale too It was wonderful indeed and I’ve got some hanging out in the fridge for tomorrow too. Thanks for the great inspiration – it’s amazing how these things can connect us! Grateful tonight So happy you liked it!

  13. Justin loves green goddess dressing – he is going to be thanking you for sharing this recipe! I love a good salad with tons of textures – thanks for sharing Shira!
