Green Tahini Sauce

Green Tahini Sauce

Tahini is my life blood. If you aren’t yet aware of what tahini is, it is a condiment made from toasted ground hulled sesame seeds, with a consistency similar to other nut butters. It has come to be one of my most coveted pantry staples. I almost always have a homemade tahini dressing or sauce of some sort, on hand, if not two. My garlic tahini, or some variation on it, is mainstay in my kitchen weekly.

Recently with all the fresh, local herbs in season I have been veering off and getting a bit more creative with my tahini sauce. This vibrant, herby, Green Tahini Sauce is so versatile. It’s wonderful simply as a dip for crudités, grain-free crackers or chips. It makes am amazing creamy, salad dressing for a traditional green salad, or better yet the perfect way to dress up a summer potato salad. It’s a lovely compliment to grain and veggie bowls or simply just steamed, roasted or sautéed vegetables of any and all kinds. It is also great in place of mayo on sandwiches. This Green Tahini is also a wonderful sauce for seafood, chicken and pork, especially when grilled or roasted.

This Green Tahini Sauce can be thrown together in mere minutes and take an otherwise ho hum meal to absolutely spectacular. Stay tuned for a delicious summer-inspired grilled recipe later this week, featuring this delicious sauce.

  • sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Red pepper flakes, optional
  • water, as needed.


  • Add all of the ingredients to a high speed blender. Process until bright green, smooth and creamy (sauce should be the consistency of sour cream or a thin mayonnaise); add water as necessary to thin to desired consistency, season with salt and pepper.

Add more water to make a thinner dressing, less or none at all for a thicker, more dip-like consistency.

    I notice that you have green onions and dill in one of your photos but they are not mentioned in the recipe. Were they missed or are they possible additions?

    • Beth @ Tasty Yummies says:

      Thanks so much for catching that, they accidentally got missed when I added into this new recipe app feature-thing I am using. I appreciate you taking the time to write. Just updated 😉

    Thanks for making the change Beth. I’ll share it on my Nude Food revolution fb page tomorrow. It’s a great sauce with many uses and every ingredient has healthy benefits. Love it!

  3. This green tahini sauce looks SO DARN GOOD. I can think of a million ways to eat it already… But I think the best would be with either falafel, or drizzled on avocado toast!! 😀

    Olive oil has become a convoluted industry…cheers to good old fashion way of making olive oils!

    Can you freeze this ?

    Would love a suggestion

    • Beth @ Tasty Yummies says:

      I have never tried freezing it myself, so I cannot say for certain, but I don’t see why not. If you try it please report back and let us know. Thank you.

    Dear Beth,

    Your sauces have been an absolute life-saver as my diet unfortunately is very limited at the moment and the ingredients on the sauces are ok for me so it makes the food more enjoyable so thank you so so much.

    I wanted to ask you, I have followed your recipes to a T using a vitamix however this one in particular comes up a little biter and the tahini one does as well, any ideas why that would be?
