What is tahini?
Tahini is a condiment from the Middle East that is made of toasted and ground sesame seeds. This condiment is a pretty important ingredient in hummus and goes super well in this salad dressing. Tahini is strong and a little bit bitter but it adds a really nice nutty flavor to this dressing. It also really helps the consistency of the dressing go from a bit watery to more thick.

It is simple and avoids any unnecessary sweeteners or preservatives. Since many of these ingredients are common household ingredients, you can just whip up as much as you need whenever you need it. This dressing is both good for you and incredibly convenient.
How long does lemon tahini vinaigrette last in the fridge?
Since this dressing is mixed with lemon juice which is a natural preservative, this dressing can last for about a week in the fridge. This is super convenient in case you have leftovers and want to save them for a salad later on in the week. Vinaigrette’s typically last longer in the fridge than other dressings because of the acid in them.
What kinds of flavors does this dressing add to the salad?
This dressing adds a zesty flavor to the salad because of the lemon juice and the tahini adds some nutty and earthy flavors. The dijon mustard also adds some yummy savory flavor. Overall, this dressing has some tangy, savory, zesty, and nutty flavors. I promise you this easy dressing will change your salad game. It is such a good dressing to add to your salad rotation.
