If you’re a lover of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean foods (like me), you’ve probably encountered the magnificent nutty, creamy blend called tahini. It’s drizzled over falafels, dipped with pita bread, and makes up a good chunk of everyone’s favorite – hummus and baba ganoush!

But tahini can also be easily be tweaked into different flavors and textures. It’s typically on the thicker side, but whisking in a bit more water and other flavor boosters creates the perfect dressing. Lemon tahini dressing is a perennial winner, but I have to say, this maple mustard tahini dressing might just be my new favorite!

What’s In This Maple Mustard Tahini Dressing?

The name pretty much says it all (maple, mustard, and tahini). But there’s just a few other things, such as lemon and garlic, that are essentials for most tahini sauces.

  • Tahini: You can make homemade tahini (super easy and I’ve got a recipe for that) or you can buy it from the store.
  • Dijon Mustard: Make sure you’re using Dijon mustard and not regular yellow mustard.
  • Maple Syrup: Hints of sweet maple perfect complement the mustard. But you could also use honey as an alternative sweetener.
  • Lemon Juice: I always like to use freshly squeezed lemon juice. But since there’s only one tablespoon needed, you can also used the bottled version if that’s easier.
  • Water: Just 3 to 4 tablespoons are needed for a creamy yet drizzle-y consistency. If you prefer a thinner texture, feel free to whisk in a bit more water.
  • Garlic: One clove packs a garlicky punch.
