  1. In a bowl whisk together the tahini, vinegar, soy sauce, salt, pepper, and sugar if using, until the salt has dissolved.
  2. Gradually beat in the olive oil until well blended. Taste for sharpness.  If the dressing is too sharp, beat in some water, a little at a time, until your dressing is to your taste.
