This Curry Tahini Dressing is the perfectly creamy, spicy, and tangy! Made with only 4 plant-based ingredients and great on salads, bowls, and as a dip.

Let’s face it: a good sauce can make or break a meal. Veggies are great and all, but nobody sane wants to eat a dry bowl of them. Which is why this Curry Tahini Dressing is so great! It’s easy to make, really dang tasty, and works with just about everything.


You only need four plant-based ingredients to make this dressing:

  • Tahini: a.k.a. sesame seed butter! The tahini you use does make a difference – some can be quite thick and bitter. We’re looking for a silky, light-flavored tahini here. Soom Foods is my favorite by far!
  • Curry Powder: we’re relying solely on curry powder seasoning for this recipe, so use your favorite salt-free blend here. Curry powder is a blend of several spices, and each brands varies a little in flavor. I personally love and use this one.
  • Garlic: for a little zing!
  • Lemon Juice: this helps to cut the tahini and add some well-rounded, acidic flavor

If you like your dressing on the sweeter side, you can also add in a splash of maple syrup or agave. I chose to go without, and loved this dressing as-is!

You can easily make this dressing in a high-speed and/or bullet blender – just add all the ingredients with a splash of water, blend, and you’re done! If you don’t have a blender, you can also make this in a bowl with a good old fashioned whisk – just be sure to finely mince your garlic, or use garlic powder instead. 


This Curry Tahini Dressing is the perfect balance of creamy, spicy, and tangy! It’s a great staple for meal prep, and can be used in a wide variety of ways. A few of my favorites are:

If you want to use this dressing as a spread vs. a dip, I suggest using 2-4 tablespoons less water so it will be thicker 🙂 It will also thicken in the fridge, so don’t be afraid to thin it out with a little extra water if you want it to be thinner.

  1. Add all ingredients to a high-speed or bullet blender and blend until smooth and creamy, 45 to 60 seconds. If your tahini is on the thicker side you may need to add extra water, to taste.
  2. Use immediately, or pour into a glass jar and store in the fridge for up to 10 days.


  • No blender? You can whisk everything together in a large bowl too! Just be sure to finely mince your garlic or use garlic powder instead.
  • If your curry powder does contain salt, omit the salt from this recipe and/or adjust to taste

  1. This is really good. I added a large piece of ginger, 1 tablespoon maple syrup. I wanted it sweeter so I add honey at the end. I reduced the water to 1 cup (obviously this is whatever consistency you want)

  2. Can anyone advise if 1.5cups of water is accurate? Written article says to add a splash of water to other items. I think I’ve added too much water….

    1. Splash of water referring to the 1.5cups. Yes, it’s accurate. You may reduce by a couple of tablespoons if it’s too thin.

      1. So sorry to hear that, Amanda. To thicken, you can add one tbsp of tahini at a time until your desired consistency is reached.

  3. OMG this dressing is so good (and so easy!). I added a bit of extra salt and the maple syrup. I used it on some leftover grains and veggies and it was so yum! It will definitely be a regular in my condiment shelf! Thanks for creating! Xo

  4. What a creative recipe, thanks Caitlin! I really don’t like tahini but I had some I needed to use up, so I decided to try this recipe. You can’t taste the tahini at all, all the other flavors mask it! Delicious with the salad recipe you posted.

    1. Tahini on it’s own can be off putting to some but it’s such a great base for dressings!
