  • mixing bowl


  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 1 tsp dry oregano
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp dry thyme


Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients

  • Gather all your ingredients in one place. Make sure you have maple syrup, tahini, dry oregano, lemon juice, garlic powder, Dijon mustard, soy sauce, water, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, and dry thyme. Having everything ready will make the process smoother.

Step 2: Mix The Ingredients

  • In a small bowl, pour in the tahini, maple syrup, lemon juice, garlic powder, Dijon mustard, soy sauce, and balsamic vinegar. Add the dry oregano, dry thyme, salt, and pepper. Use a whisk to combine everything together thoroughly. Keep whisking until the mixture becomes smooth and creamy.

Step 3: Adjust Consistency

  • After whisking, check the consistency of your dressing. If you prefer it to be thinner, gradually add water while continuing to whisk until you achieve your desired consistency. Be mindful not to add too much water too quickly; it’s easier to thin the dressing out than to thicken it back up.

Step 4: Taste And Adjust Seasonings

  • Once you’ve achieved your desired consistency, give the dressing a taste. Adjust the seasonings as needed to suit your preferences. You can add more salt, pepper, or any other seasoning to enhance the flavor to your liking. Keep tasting and adjusting until it’s just right for you. Enjoy your homemade tahini balsamic dressing on salads, grilled vegetables, or as a dip!


  • Tahini: Choose a high-quality tahini for the best flavor and creaminess.
  • Balsamic vinegar: Opt for aged balsamic vinegar for a more robust flavor.
  • Lemon juice: Freshly squeezed lemon juice is preferred for a vibrant taste.
