This easy-to-make dressing is lemony, nutty, and perfectly creamy. You can find tahini in the international aisle or with the nut butters in most grocery stores. Stir the tahini well before using—be sure to use a butter knife to stir, as spoons trap too much! If you don’t want to get out the mini processor, simply grate the garlic into your lemon juice using a Microplane.
How to Make It
Place fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon) and coarsely chopped garlic clove in a mini food processor; process until the garlic is finely chopped, about 10 seconds, scraping the bowl as necessary. Add tahini paste, and process until smooth, about 10 seconds longer. Add 3 tablespoons cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the dressing can be drizzled. Spoon into an airtight container. Refrigerate until needed.
