Fresh parsley, dill and tarragon give this creamy dressing its great flavor and pretty green color. It’s a perfect way to perk up your salad!

I enjoy this one a lot. The predominant flavors are tahini and tarragon. The tarragon makes this feel like I'm eating a main dish. It came out really runny, though. I ended up adding extra dill and tarragon to try to make up for it.

hubby made this for me and it was excellent, the creaminess makes it feel like a dressing that's not as healthy as it is! i'll definitely be using this recipe frequently :-)

Modification: We don't have VegiZest so he subbed Mrs. Dash - like seasoning blend.

6/22/06 Update: I made this again and subbed frozen spinach for the parsley, dill and tarragon. It was a much more mild flavor and reminded me of pesto. It was still a beautiful green color. I am thinking about making it again with basil and spinach or maybe just basil.

I really like this recipe a lot. Instead of buying raw tahini, I just substitute whole raw sesame seeds because then you don't have any issues with the freshness of the tahini. Sometimes tahini will taste bitter, and sometimes its hard to find un-salted and raw. Anyway, substituting sesame seeds works just fine in a vitamix. Actually, what I do is use 3 ounces sesame seeds, and 1 ounce of cashews.

Definitely one of my favorite dressings! I use Tahini per my Eat for Health book. Maybe this recipe was updated to use unhulled sesame seeds instead? Check out the Green Velvet Salad recipe too!!

Just tried this for the first time. It is my new favorite dressing! I don't have VegiZest yet but used original Mrs. Dash instead. Still turned out great!

This post is on behalf of my brand newly ETL hubby, since I tried it and didnt love it. He used it for the day and came home and said he likes it better than full fat ranch dressing.....thats a huge deal for him if you knew how many gallons of ranch we went through to get as fat as we got hahahaha. Thank you for this recipe!

I used Mrs dash's garlic and herb blend, and dried tarragon since I couldnt find any fresh

I would give this a higher rating but it was too watery. I added an avocado and then it was the correct thickness for our tastes. It is very tasty and excellent on cooked or raw vegetables. I am not sure why it was so watery but it was very good.

Delicious. I used a little less liquid based on other comments and after being in the fridge it was perhaps a little TOO thick. Not a problem - just requires a little extra salad tossing. I will make again!

I have kept most dressings I have made from this website 5-6 days.  They don't last long b/c we eat salad every day.  I haven't made this one yet but it looks good!

It was a turning point for me to find out you can freeze these dressings!  I buy small containers, the right size for one serving, and make all of my salad dressings in advance.  I can open up the freezer today and pick out what salad dressings I want for the next day or two and I'm set!

I'm not sure if this format takes my question to Osiecool, but hope it does, or anyone else if it's relevant!  Osiecool, I saw your comment at the end of the Greenvelvet dressing recipe, saying that you've found it helpful to freeze the dressings.  That would help me greatly also, and I wanted to ask:  Have you found that some freeze better than others or some don't freeze well?  I'd like to start doing this, so your inspiration on this is most appreciated.  I'm currently following the 10in20 program because it helps with planning, prepping and shopping, and someone on the Facebook support group page for that group mentioned this recipe, so I looked it up and here's where I found your comment.  :))

I am giving this a 4.5 star.    As soon as I made it,  it brought back memories of when I went to a health farm back in the 80's. There they had their own garden with vegetables and herbs. As I smelled this dressing, the herbs brought me back to that time.   I did enjoy it alot and it will be one of my new dressings.
