Yoghurt And Tahini Dressing

I have decided to start getting creative in the kitchen with salad dressing recipes. During the summer months I made cucumber and feta salads to go with what we were cooking on the barbecue. I would ordinarily serve this with my standard salad dressing which I always have in the fridge, and elevate the flavours with a bit of fresh mint, straight from the garden. However, in my attempt to change things up a bit with new salad dressings, I decided to make this yoghurt and tahini dressing. Tahini is another ingredient I always have in my pantry as I much prefer to make my own hummus than buy it.

Yoghurt And Tahini Dressing

This salad dressing is quite versatile and it will work perfectly on some boiled potatoes as well. You can spice up this salad dressing by adding cayenne pepper to it. Or make it tangy with the addition of sumac. I like to experiment and once I have a base flavour that I like I work from that.

  1. I love salads and I’m always looking for a healthier way to add dressing. Not only is this healthy but it looks absolutly delicious and this is a guy talking. As you know most guys are thinking steak and potatoes. Like most guys, I’ll pass this on to my wife to make if for me. 🙂

  2. I like the sounds of this very much, especially for when the weather warms up. 🙂 The thought of salad in winter makes me shudder. 🙂

    1. There is a fine balance between too much and not enough when it comes to cumin, and I don’t always get it right 🙂

  3. Just up my alley–i use the very same combination–however i do add a bit of green chili and some toasted sesame seeds for added crunch
