This garlicky tahini sauce is traditionally served with chicken kebabs, but we loved it with the beef kebabs as well.
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 cup tahini
- 7 tablespoons lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons water
- Mash garlic and salt in a medium bowl using the back of a spoon until a paste forms. Whisk in tahini, lemon juice and water.
Tips & Notes
- Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
- Note: Tahini is a thick paste made from ground sesame seeds. Look for it in large supermarkets in the Middle Eastern section or near other nut butters.
