Tahini sauce

Tahini sauce is super simple and works well in sandwiches or as a salad dressing.

Yield: 1½-2 cups

Time: 5 minutes


  • bowl
  • whisk


  • 1 c tahini
  • ¼ to ½ c lemon juice  or  apple cider vinegar
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 t salt
  • ½-1 c water


Stir the tahini until smooth, then add the rest of the ingredients and whisk until completely smooth.

Taste and adjust seasonings.

Keep it thick for a dip or spread, or add more water for a sauce or dressing.


Thick tahini sauce is great as a sandwich spread or dip, while thinner tahini sauce can be drizzled over falafel, salad, or vegetables.
