Maybe my lemon was overly juicy but this was way too lemony for me & I like lemon sauce. No way was DH going to eat it. So I added more tahini and low sodium soy and it balanced out beautifully. I will be careful to add only half the lemon juice next time & taste before adding more. Submitted by:

Absolutely delicious & I rarely like Chef Meg's recipes due to lack of flavor. Not so with this sauce. I omitted the olive oil to reduce calories & the lemon juice simply because I didn't have any lemons on hand. Next time I'll double this recipe b/c it goes great with so many things. Submitted by:

I would prefer to leave out the oil or at least have less. I want a dressing that has no fat and few calories. Submitted by:

Since the serving size is only 1 TBSP, it's not a lot of fat, and the olive oil is a healthy oil. Submitted by:

I made just made this with limes instead of lemons, organic red cider vinegar instead of rice wine vinegar, and Fort Bragg amino acids instead of the soy sauce. I also left out the olive oil to reduce fat. 5 minutes prep time is very unrealistic even with a food processor, but it is very tasty. Submitted by:

This tastes very good, but it has way too much fat in it for me. I looked for other recipes on the internet and was much more satisfied with those. Submitted by:

I've been trying to convert to low sodium and low calories, but still have flavor. That means.....fresh and handmade. Everything in a can or box is killin' me with salt. I can tell this will be a new staple in our home, thanks chef meg. Submitted by:

This sounds delicious!
@KJARD1: you probably could use a good-quality peanut butter (one that is just peanuts and salt) as a substitute for the tahini; I've used it with garbanzo beans to make hummus when I was out of tahini. Also, if you have one nearby, Trader Joe's sells tahini in nice small tu
