Summary

Tahini is the magical ingredient that makes this dressing rich and creamy. With the addition of garlic, lemon, and cilantro, it’s also bursting with flavor and so versatile! It’s packed with calcium (tahini), prebiotics (garlic), and vitamin C (cilantro). Used it as a salad dressing, on top of a grain bowl, or as a sauce for grilled tofu or tempeh.

Chef's Notes

Substitutions
Try ¼ cup basil and ¼ cup cilantro for variety.

Don’t like cilantro? Use ½ cup basil.

Prep Ahead
Make it ahead of time! Green Goddess Dressing will keep for 5 to 7 days in a well-sealed container in the refrigerator.

Sugar-free
Use orange juice or pineapple juice for maple free, or simply try omitting the maple.

Salt and pepper really aren’t needed here, but add a sprinkle if you’d like.

Make it spicy and more nutritious
Add 1–2 tablespoons of chopped jalapeno.

Blend in 1” piece of ginger.
