Delicious and appreciated the comment to use miso paste I/o salt. In my opinion, the balance of tahini and lemon was great. Thank you Gena!

Delicious and so easy! I used my favorite tahini from a local Israeli grocer; it’s much thinner than the ones I’ve purchased from Trader Joe’s and the supermarket. I didn’t use the minimum amount of water and it was so thin I added more tahini. I will be using this on so many dishes...

made this with just eyeballing everything but added a bit of extra lemon juice and a little of the zest, plus ground sumac, a teeny bit of dried orange peel, and a little crushed aleppo pepper. sooo good, and i am not the hugest straight-tahini fan! we poured it over some grilled eggplant with fresh mint, parsley, feta, and pine nuts. 👏👏

This has quickly become a family favorite. And don't be discouraged by come of the reviews-- it's so easy to tweak depending on mood and the flavors of your ingredients that day. I start with the proportions in the recipe, and then add more of whatever it needs to bring it into balance. Absolutely delicious drizzled on to asparagus!

This is A lemon tahini dressing, just a template. You adapt it to your preferences, people. Really. Do you (and you know who you are) really have a stone tablet with THE lemon tahini dressing recipe on it??? If so, maybe you should take the time to post it. People post recipes that work for them and the people they cook for. Make it your own without the value judgements, can't you??? Not Gena Hamshaw, btw, so don't blame her. /;)

wayy too much tahini and not enough lemon. all I could taste was tahini, had to change a lot.

I really enjoyed the combination of brown rice, kale, avocado and lentils (but beans would be equally good), but I found the dressing lacking a little punch, so I added 2 garlic cloves, very finely crushed, a bit of freshly squeezed orange juice and a few drops of siracha. Then, it was absolutely delicious !

I thought this was heavy on tahini and light on lemon, unless you really like the taste of tahini.
