Dressing with too strong lemon flavor

Leftover from a recipe (3tsp tahini / 2tbs lemon juice / 1/3c water / 1/4c olive oil) I have enough to make a dressing and it tastes quite good except for the pronounced lemon. I will add garlic but what else to turn this into a dressing?

Late update to the results. In order to actually fix it and use I went with what I had so added 3 chopped cloves of garlic, about 4 green onions thinly sliced and 3 lengths of chives. It was really good and I was shocked at how much difference the vegetables made to it. Definitely a lesson learned.

Thanks! great suggestions, would have never thought of either of these. Going to have a go and see how it turns out.

Yes...and what you serve it on.

Use foods that are neutral or basic (opposite of acidic) on pH scale:
some vegetables (esp potatoes, beets, mushrooms)
yogurt and other dairy
fats (avocado, more oil)

Maybe a little honey?
