Super creamy Vegan Strawberry Tahini Dressing is a delicious 5 minute salad dressing that can be made with fresh or frozen strawberries, delicious anytime!


Units Scale
  1. 1-1/2 cups strawberries, halved (thawed if using frozen)
  2. Juice of 1 medium lemon
  3. 1/4 cup tahini (see note 1)
  4. 1/4 cup water
  5. 1/2 tsp salt
  6. 1-2 tbsp dried basil
  7. 1-1/2 tsp Dijon mustard, optional but recommended
  8. 1 tbsp maple syrup, optional


  1. Add clean berries to the blender along with everything else EXCEPT the basil
  2. Blend it all up until smooth. Add basil and pulse a few times to incorporate..
  3. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 5 days.


  • Note 1: I mentioned above, you can use tofu or white beans if you’d like this dressing to be lower fat, but I think that the flavors marry better when there’s a fat to combine them. To keep things oil-free, you could use coconut cream or soaked cashews (or even sunflower seeds!) in your blender. If you’re cool with oil, you could certainly use that instead.
