Do you ever stumble upon a combination that really speaks to you, and that you end up making again and again? This drizzle has been That Thing in our house this year. It arose from my recent turmeric obsession (see my Golden Granola as evidence of my love for this golden spice) and has become a versatile sauce/dressing/dip that I make at least twice a week.
This drizzle is my everything. It works beautifully as a creamy salad dressing to bring decadence to a big bowl of raw veggies. At a slightly thicker texture, it's a showstopping sauce on a hearty nourish bowl. At its thickest, it's a fabulous dip for veggies or crackers. It takes five minutes to make, and you can easily change up the flavors (see lots of ideas below!) by switching up the citrus juice and/or the sweetener, so it can really match whatever you're making.
In this post, I'll outline the basics of how to make this dressing, then include lots of ideas for how to customize its flavor and texture. I'll also show many different ways of using it, so make sure to check out the photos and their captions as well. Turmeric has such fabulous anti-inflammatory properties, so there's every reason to include this luscious sauce in your menu a couple times a week!
Clearly, a key component in this drizzle is tahini. Because there are so few ingredients in this drizzle, the tahini really can't hide behind anything else; it's front and center in terms of both flavor and texture. I'm a huge lover of Seeds of Collaboration tahini because it's rich, nutty, the tiniest bit sweet, and has absolutely no bitterness. Unlike most grocery store brands that are grainy or gloppy, this magical tahini has a creamy, velvety texture. I eat it by the spoonful straight out of the jar!

One of the things I love most about this drizzle is its versatility. There are four main ways you can change it up to suit your needs:
Here's what you'll need for this recipe, as well as some thoughts, tips, and possible substitutions. If you make any substitutions, I'd love to hear about it in the comments section below.
And that's it... just four ingredients, or three if you don't use citrus. Because of the short ingredient list, this drizzle comes together in just a couple minutes and all in one bowl. I don't know about you, but I always have tahini, maple syrup, and turmeric in the house, so this is one I can pull together even if we haven't been to the store in a while.
Don't you just love everything about this golden drizzle? I hope this post shows you why we can't get enough of it! Thanks to its nourishing and pantry-friendly ingredients, plus the fact that it comes together in less than five minutes in one bowl, there's no reason not to enjoy this as a sauce, dressing, or dip a couple times a week!
