Tahini dressing, also known as tahini sauce, is a popular topping across the world. It has a consistency similar to that of peanut butter. There are plenty of ways to relish the sauce; as a dip to have with raw vegetables, as a spread to go with the toast, to flavor soups, or as its name suggests, a dressing on salads.
Usually, white sesame seeds are used to make Tahini Dressing. However, one can also use black sesame seeds in the recipe.
Sesame seeds are the main ingredient that goes into the making of Tahini dressing. One of the most ancient foods on earth, sesame seeds are known for a slew of health benefits. They improve lipid profiles and normalize cholesterol, thereby boosting heart health.

Tahini Dressing also contains lemon juice which is a good source of vitamin C and aids in digestion and weight loss.
