Creamy Sesame Dressing

Updated: 6 days ago

This recipe is a go-to for adding flavor and creamy texture! Try with a variety of savory dishes. We love to get our hands dirty massaging it into kale for a fiber and antioxidant rich salad. It’s also amazon on top of rice and veggie bowls with chicken. Try dipping baked sweet potato fries in this sauce- so good! 


You might notice there’s no ingredient called “sesame” in this sesame dressing. The sesame here comes from tahini, a creamy seed butter from sesame seeds. It’s similar to peanut butter, but usually a runnier consistency and a more savory taste. You’ll likely find it near the peanut butter at your local grocery store.


Sesame seeds and tahini have loads of health benefits! They contain fiber, healthy fats, and a little protein. They also contain phytoestrogens, lignans, and zinc- all these contribute to happy hormones.
