This Creamy Lemon Tahini dressing will turn any simple salad into a gourmet meal! The recipe is super easy and comes together in less than five minutes. All you have to do is whisk the tahini paste, crushed garlic, salt, lemon juice and olive oil together. You will notice that the dressing is getting thicker as you whisk. And that’s when you slowly add some warm water to get a smooth, creamy and pourable dressing. Using a mason jar to make this salad dressing is super helpful. They’re airtight, so it easy to store leftovers, they’re easy to clean and dishwasher safe.  Get my favorite go-to Mason jars Here

Store in an airtight container or a mason jar in the fridge for up to a week. The dressing will thicken up and some separation may occur, just add a couple tablespoon of warm water, whisk it up again and enjoy!
