Pour the tahini into a bowl large enough to have space to whisk in.
Add lemon zest, freshly squeezed lemon juice and orange juice. Whisk it all together.
If the mixture is thick and stiff, add water a little at a time and whisk till the dressing is creamy and fluid. I added 1 tablespoon of water to get this effect
Add honey, whisk it in.
Add salt and black pepper, stir it in.
Drizzle in the olive oil, stirring as you add.
Taste for seasoning and add a little more if required.
Store the Tahini Citrus Honey salad dressing, covered, in the fridge till required.
This salad dressing pairs well with leafy salads such as kale and mango salad and other salads with spinach or swiss chard.
Keeps for about a week, in the fridge, but this dressing is best when made fresh.
