Add some Middle Eastern flair with a tahini and cilantro salad dressing. Bonus points because it’s super easy to whip up. Our Salad Dressing topic is brought to you by Stonyfield Organic.

  • Author: Anita Schecter
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


  • ¼ cup Greek-style yogurt (plain), such as Stonyfield Organic
  • ¼ cup sesame paste
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Add the Greek yogurt, sesame paste, water, lemon juice and garlic to a small food processor and puree until smooth.
  2. Add the cilantro and pulse a few times to combine.
  3. Season with salt and pepper to taste. (Note that the dressing will thicken up in the refrigerator so just thin it out with a little water or lemon juice.)
