Pumpkin Tahini Salad Dressing

Pumpkin Tahini Salad Dressing

Is it too early for pumpkin? It just might be. I’m sorry, sort of. But I just can’t help myself from grabbing a few cans the minute I start thinking about fall. However to still keep things bit summery, today we are using pumpkin to make a delicious sesame salad dressing. The combination of pumpkin and tahini is unexpected and amazing. The two earthy flavors work great together and lemon brings just the right amount of zing. Use it over any salad or drizzled over a power bowl, quinoa, brown rice, or veggies.

Pumpkin Tahini Salad Dressing


  • 4 tbsp. pumpkin puree
  • 2 tbsp. tahini
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1-2 tbsp. water
  • 2 tbsp. plain soy yogurt or vegan mayonnaise
  • Salt and pepper
