Author Notes

Made with a tahini base, this spin on a classic green goddess dressing is amped up with fresh basil flavor. It is entirely plant-based and nut-free, and it can be thrown together in under five minutes and made ahead of time. Store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days and use it as a salad dressing or vegetable dip or drizzle it over grain bowls, roasted or grilled vegetables, and pasta. —Sher Castellano
