There are two types of people in this world: those who love dressings (and sauces) and those who don’t. I am one who happens to love dressings, and my recipe for Turmeric Tahini Salad Dressing is my absolute favorite.
The main ingredient in my Turmeric Tahini Salad Dressing is tahini, which is simply sesame seed butter. This gives the dressing a slight nutty flavor very similar to peanut butter. However, if you don’t have tahini in your pantry, just scroll down to find a few substitutes that you can use instead.
My Turmeric Tahini Salad Dressing can be made with ingredients that you might already have in your pantry. However, if you don’t have all of these ingredients, there are a few substitutions that you can use, and the recipe will still taste amazing.
Instead of tahini, you can use almond butter, sunflower seed butter (or sunbutter as it’s also called), or cashew butter. However, we don’t recommend peanut butter as a substitute.
