Dress your salad up like a pro with the easy avocado tahini dressing. It’s simple to make, free from gluten and oil, and can be ready in 5 minutes or less.


  • 1 large avocado (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • Juice from 1/2 a lemon (1 tablespoon)
  • 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups water*
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill (or 1 tablespoon fresh)*(see notes)

  • You can replace water with vegetable broth for a more flavorful dressing.
  • This pairs well with our Vegan Tempeh Bacon.
  • Feel free to replace the dill and chives with any herb or herb blend that you would like. We have used cilantro in this recipe for tacos and it works well 🙂

    Hi, this recipe looks so attractive! But can I replace the dill and chive with some dried mixed herbs? Thanks!:D

    Made this dressing last night to go with the walnut mushroom tacos and felt that the amount of tahini was way too much. It overpowered all of the other ingredients. I may try to make it again but using a lot less tahini.

    • So sorry that you didn’t like the tahini! Tahini brands vary in bitterness and “strength”, so I totally get that it may have been too much for your tastebuds. I hope you enjoy it more next time!
