This is one of the few dressings in the book that calls for the traditional amount of oil in a vinaigrette. However, plain hummus and a touch of tahini yield a creamy alternative, so that’s the oil-free option here.


  • cup (80 ml) fresh lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
  • 2


Combine the lemon juice, thyme, garlic, sesame oil, sugar, salt, and pepper in a jar with a tight-fitting lid. (OF: Add the tahini as well.) Whisk in the oil in a slow, steady stream and adjust the seasoning. Refrigerate for up to 5 days. (Remove the garlic clove before serving.)
