Tahini dressing – this is amazing with anything!

So, I’ve been using my tahini and soy sauce (or Bragg’s Liquid Aminos) combo for many years. These two ingredients mixed together make an amazing dressing that goes well with… well just about anything.

This evening on a rainy, chilly night in Brighton, England, with a wild salmon steak baking in the oven and some green veg ready to stir-fry in some coconut oil, I randomly added a few extras to my trusty tahini/soy sauce combo and realised I had upgraded it to new heights. Here’s the recipe. (Believe me, this goes well with anything… peas, green veg, salads, meats, fish, Asian-style dishes, as a dip, as a spread…)


  • 3 tbsp tahini paste
  • 1 tbsp quality soy sauce or Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp xylitol or sugar or sugar alternative or honey
  • 1 small garlic glove, crushed


  1. Simply shake everything together in a jar.
  2. Serve with whatever you fancy.
  3. Enjoy!


  • Use as a salad dressing
  • Serve with Asian dishes as a dip, e.g. with Vietnamese Spring Rolls
  • Drizzle over green veggies
  • Spread onto toast
  • Dip wholemeal pitta into it
  • Stir into hot peas – trust me, this is truly sensational!
  • Drizzle over wild salmon or any fish
