This tahini goddess dressing is similar to several commercial brands. It is excellent on salad and rice or as a marinade.




  1. In a blender, combine the oil, water, tahini, vinegar, lemon juice, soy sauce, garlic, and xanthan gum. Blend on high for about 2 minutes. You will see a change in the texture of the mixture as the xanthan gum starts to work, producing a very smooth, creamy appearance.
  2. Add the sesame seeds, parsley, and chives. Blend on low, just until mixed.

Notes, tips, and variations

  • Xanthan gum is available in many grocery stores in the baking or grain sections.
  • Be careful with the xanthan gum; too much and the mixture will turn into a rubbery glob, too little and the oil and water will separate.
  • If brand substitutions are made, the recipe may need adjustment.
  • This dressing has a very strong flavors that need to be balanced. When in balance, the flavor really explodes.
