This easy no-cook Tahini Yogurt Dressing is a flavour bomb which takes a simple garlic, coriander sauce and ramps it up a notch with the tang of sesame paste. In even better news, it’s so versatile that it’s equally at home with Indian, Mexican and Middle Eastern inspired dishes.

I am already obsessed with yogurt sauce. I use my coriander mint yogurt sauce on everything as it is. But when I created a mezze feast with griddled courgettes and bell peppers, quick pickled red onions and couscous salad, I couldn’t resist creating a tahini spiked version.
I love to use za’atar – a middle eastern spice mix at any opportunity and it makes an ideal garnish for this sauce/dressing. It’s available pretty much everywhere now so please do pick some up and try it if you haven’t already.
I called this recipe a dressing but really it is just as useful as a dip and a sauce. So make up a slightly larger batch and keep it in the fridge for up to a week and use it every day. I guarantee you’ll want to!

What a great sauce. I can’t wait to make this to go with kebabs and bbq picnic food in the summer.
Love tahini and I now might be covering everything I eat in this tasty sauce!

This sounds delicious, I love anything with za’atar! Can’t wait to try it on some chicken gyros.

I love tahini on anything and this sauce sounds delicious and so versatile. Will definitely be making this one, thanks for sharing.
This looks lush! Such great flavours – yum!
Ooh this sauce is right up my street. I’ve made tahini yoghurt dip / sauce any number of times, but never as you have with a load of chopped coriander. I’m absolutely going to try this next time I do a Middle Eastern inspired meal – which won’t be long as we eat this sort of food on a regular basis.
Coriander in everything – dems the rules! Hope you enjoy x

Sounds super-delicious. So fresh and light. And if it’s got fresh coriander, I’m smitten!
Everything with coriander in my house – glad to hear there is a fellow coriander nut about!
This is a great recipe to serve with a falafel salad! Love it!
Perfect serving suggestion! Hope you enjoy 🙂
