Creamy Lemon & Herb Flaxseed Salad Dressing


  • cup tahini
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • ½ cup packed assorted fresh tender herbs cilantro, basil, parsley
  • 1 tsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 garlic clove minced (or grated using a microplane)
  • 2 tsp Manitoba Milling Co. Smooth Whole-Milled Flax
  • ¼ tsp kosher sea salt
  • Pinch red pepper flakes
  • Up to ¼ cup very warm water


  • Add all ingredients besides water to a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. Alternatively, you can whisk ingredients in a bowl.
  • Next add 2 Tbsp water, blend/whisk, then check consistency. Continue to add 1 Tbsp of water at a time repeating this process until dressing reaches your desired consistency. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 5 days.


  • You will probably need to thin the dressing with more water and/or bring back to room temperature after refrigerating as the tahini will solidify a bit.
  • For a more pourable consistency, add more water. For more of a sauce-like consistency, add less water.
