We made this delicious tahini lime dressing for all those who love the nutty flavour of sesame paste. Creamy and refreshing, it's the perfect condiment to salads and wraps. All it takes are four wholesome ingredients and 5 minutes. Let's do it!
This quick dressing pairs the freshness of lime juice with the richness of tahini. These flavours are well balanced by a sweet and sour combo of apple cider vinegar and maple syrup — so good!
Tahini is a smooth butter made from hulled sesame seeds, which are first toasted and then ground into a silky paste. It's a staple ingredient in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine, used in traditional recipes like hummus, baba ganoush, and halva. It's also great on toasted bread, drizzled on falafels, added to energy bites — and straight from the jar too.
Besides being delicious, sesame paste is also rich in precious nutrients like proteins, fibres, calcium, and iron. Plus, it's a heart-friendly ingredient as most of its fats are healthy unsaturated fats. In this recipe, we used tahini instead of oil as a base for the dressing, reducing the overall fat content by 25%.
A two-tablespoon serving has less than 70 calories and covers 8% RDI for fats and 4% RDI for saturated fats. So, make a big batch of this lime dressing and keep it in the fridge to have a healthy condiment always at hand.
