  • 1/4 cup drippy tahini (we use Soom tahini)
  • Juice from ½ large lemon (about 2-3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice)
  • 1 clove garlic, grated or finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon very finely diced capers
  • 2 teaspoons caper brine (from the jar of capers)
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard (we love a grainy dijon!)
  • 1-3 tablespoons warm water, to thin out dressing a bit to your liking
  • Freshly ground salt and black pepper, to taste.


  1. Mix the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl until smooth: tahini, fresh lemon juice, garlic, diced capers, caper brine, dijon mustard, warm water and freshly ground black pepper. Taste and add a pinch of salt, if necessary.

Recipe Notes

Please note that most caesar dressings are pretty heavy on the salt and that's also important in this recipe to bring out the flavor and make it taste like a true Caesar salad dressing. Be generous with your salt and pepper!
