  • 1/4 cup tahini well-stirred
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons agave nectar (See Note)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove grated on zester/microplane
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt or to taste
  • 4 to 6 tablespoons cold water


  • Combine the tahini, agave nectar, lemon juice, garlic and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk well to combine.
  • Add water a tablespoon at a time, whisking after each addition, until desired consistency is achieved.
  • The dressing thickens as it rests, particularly when stored in the refrigerator. Add a little water and re-whisk to loosen it up to the desired consistency.


Weight Watchers Points: 2 (Blue - Freestyle SP) / 2 (Green) / 2 (Purple)
Note: If you don’t have agave nectar, use maple syrup or honey instead. Honey is not considered vegan, so avoid that option if you’re following a vegan diet.
