In a blender add 1 clove of minced garlic, ¼ cup of apple cider vinegar, ⅓ cup of soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, 2 teaspoons of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of honey or maple syrup and blend it until it is smooth.

Step 3: Mix well and adjust the consistency

Pour this mixture into a mixing bowl and add in the toasted sesame seeds along with ½ cup of cold water(Adjust according to your desired consistency). Mix everything together until you have a smooth and creamy texture.

Step 4: Finishing Touches

Finally give it some more taste by adding about ½ teaspoon each of salt and pepper, then mix everything again.

There you go !! You have now made yourself an amazing bowl of fresh homemade tahini goddess dressing which is deliciously creamy and addictive. I suggest storing it in an airtight container in the fridge for at most a week. Enjoy trying this recipe with your favorite salads!

– To make vegan tahini goddess dressing: Simply omit the soy sauce and use tamari instead. Tamari is a gluten-free soy sauce alternative that provides a similar savoury flavour.
