Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine tahini, lemon juice, oil, garlic and salt in a food processor. Pulse, scraping down the sides as needed, until smooth. With the motor running, add water in a thin stream until the mixture is pale and smooth. Transfer the dip to a serving bowl and top with parsley. Garnish with sesame seeds and more oil, if desired.



To make ahead: Refrigerate for up to 2 days. Add a little water before serving if the dip is too stiff.
