Lemon Tahini Dressing (AKA "T-Crack")

Author: Molly Patrick of Clean Food Dirty Girl


  • 1/2 cup tahini 110g
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice 1 average sized lemon
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • 6 dates if your dates are huge or you like it less sweet, use 4 dates, pitted and simmered in water for 10 minutes
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 cup water


  • Place all of the ingredients in your blender and blend until creamy and smooth, about one full minute (make sure to drain the water from the dates before you add them to the blender).
  • Use this as salad dressing, pour it over veggies, use it to roast butternut squash, use it as mayo and use it to drizzle over tacos and burritos. You can use this sauce for any damn thing and it will be delicious.


If making this for one or two people, feel free to cut this recipe in half. This sauce will last for about a week and it freezes well.
