When you find a salad dressing you really like, you want to dress every salad you make in that dressing. The only problem with that is that you can use too much of a good thing. You don’t want to bore your taste buds with the same flavors, which is why we encourage everyone to have a rotating list of dressings they enjoy. If you have five to 10 dressings to choose from, you will never tire of your salads. And this cucumber tahini dressings is one you’ll want to include in your top 10!

Tahini is a great ingredient that adds a subtle nuttiness and a lot of creaminess to a dressing. It is a common ingredient in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisines, but it also makes for an excellent salad dressing ingredient. Just make sure that the tahini is raw if you are cleansing. You shouldn’t see any other ingredient on the list besides sesame seeds. Because this dressing calls for five tablespoons of tahini, you don’t need extra olive oil, or another type of oil for the dressing. The acidity of the freshly squeezed lemon juice pairs beautifully with the nutty tahini flavor. Plus, the cucumbers contain a lot of water, which helps make the dressing a beautiful consistency.

Although tahini is seemingly the star of this salad dressing, the real kicker is the cumin. Cumin is a plant that’s closely related to dill, parsley, and caraway. This spice can add a nutty warmth and peppery flavor to sauces, or dressings in this case. It is commonly paired with citrus or another acidic ingredient because they complement each other.
