A unusual spin on the usual dressings we put on sweet heirloom or beefsteak tomatoes, Tahini dressing complements the tomatoes with earthy, savory notes.



34 large heirloom or beefsteak tomatoes, medium slice
1/4 cup Tahini |
3 tablespoons water, or more if needed
2 tablespoons fresh lemon or lime juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
12 teaspoons maple syrup or to taste
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil (or use an additional tablespoon of olive oil)
1 clove of garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon Rain’s Choice pure vanilla extract
1/3 cup Feta cheese (optional)
Chopped chives or Italian parsley for garnish


Blend tahini and water together, adding more if needed to make it more fluid. Add balance of ingredients, taste and adjust to your taste.

Spread some of the dressing on a large plate. Slice tomatoes and place on top of the tahini. Drizzle more dressing on top of the tomatoes, add feta if using, and garnish with chives or parsley.
