Trina’s Tahini Dressing

dressed salad

Happy New Year!

It's the new year, it's a great time to start eating healthier or to add healthy habits to our already healthy regime.

For many, an easy way to eat healthier is to eat more salads. This dressing will make your salads more satisfying, filling and healthier. Sesame seeds contain iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, manganese, fiber and protein. Read more here.

The tahini (sesame seed paste), this salad dressing is a great way to support the calcium needs of anyone and vegans in particular. Increase the calcium benefit by tossing low-oxalate/high calcium greens in the dressing: broccoli, kale, collards and or Chinese cabbage.


¼ C. raw organic tahini

1 T. apple cider vinegar

Pink Salt/pepper/onion powder/cumin to taste (about ½ t. each)

1 t. Honey (More if you like sweeter dressings. Raw local honey is best for immune and seasonal allergy support.)

1 T. water

(Note: I've included several different spices following salt and pepper. These are all optional and shouldn't stop you from making the recipe if you don't have them.)


In a large bowl, add all ingredients. Whisk to incorporate and blend. Toss greens in the dressing. Enjoy it as is or with your favorite toppings!

(That's it. Pretty simple and oh so delicious!)
