I responded on the recipe page as well, but toasted almonds or hazelnuts blitzed in a food processor work nicely in place of tahini. Use about a 1/4 cup, and add water a little at time to other dressing ingredients to get the right consistency.

You can blend peanut butter with a little bit of sesame oil and then use half the amount of the tahini asked for.
