  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil or refined avocado oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2.5 tbsp coconut aminos (OR 1.5 tbsp soy sauce)
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar, sweeter and aged is better
  • 1/2 tsp tahini paste
  • 2 tsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 clove garlic (OR 1/2 tsp garlic powder)
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper


  1. Blend all ingredients in a blender or food processor.
  2. Store in a container and refrigerate. Serve on salads & stir-fries

Recipe Notes

You can substitute the tahini paste for any kind of nut or seed butter. I also really enjoy substituting in almond butter (which is NOT nut free). You can also add more water if you prefer a thinner dressing.
