After being at the gym, I wanted a nice healthy lunch and I wanted my favorite dressing on my salad. Alas, my fridge didn’t have any Annie’s Goddess Salad Dressing and I didn’t feel like a bike ride in the pouring rain to the store and back for some of Annie’s goodness. The website lists the ingredients being: expeller-pressed canola oil, water, tahini, soy sauce, lemon juice, salt, garlic, toasted sesame seeds, parsley, chives, and xanthan gum. I don’t know about the xantham gum, but I had many of the same ingredients in my own cupboard and decided to come up with my own look-a-like blend. The results were surprisingly similar and I’ll definitely keep this recipe on hand for all my salad needs & wants. Tangy, fresh and I don’t need a cold, wet bike ride to get the salad dressing I want! Perfect.
i’m the goddess salad dressing
4 T tahini
4 T olive oil
6 T water
juice of 1 lemon
2 T soy sauce
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 t chopped fresh ginger
6 drops of toasted sesame oil
dash of salt
Mix all ingredients in blender. Blend until combined. Pour over salad.
Yum! that goddess dressing is my favorite. it’s good in tuna salad and in scrambled eggs too!
What?! No Xanthan Gum in your pantry? Actually, your salad dressing sounds really tasty!
I have thought of trying that salad dressing so many times, but never have.
Now you’ve inspired me! Thank you!
Rorie, it IS really good…even without the Xanthan Gum! Heehee.
Rachel, I can’t believe how easy it was to replicate. I’ll have to give it a go in tuna salad cuz that sounds awesome.
Ivonne, it’s totally one of my absolute favorite salad dressings!
Just glanced at your audioscrobbler. I always think folks are brave to set these up and let others know what they *really* listen to. I mean, I may blog about cool music, but what I secretly love is Britney Spears. (Joking!) Glad you liked Saw so much.
Ha! That’s so funny Amy, because I actually have Brittney Spears “Toxic” on my itunes (as well as a few other enjoyable but definitely cringeworthy tuens!)
Thanks, Tania! I was totally surprised at how simple it was to recreate.
I’ve bought Annie’s “goddess” dressing! And now I don’t have to anymore!
Yay! Thanks for sharing your culinary creativity.
This sounds fab! Thanks for sharing.
Isil S, these are totally fab!!
Love the name! Your dressing definitely looks closer to the real thing than mine. Xanthan gum is not all it’s cracked up to be! 😉
