  • 2 tablespoons tahini (see Tip)

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, plus more to taste

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup low-fat plain Greek yogurt

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro


  1. Combine tahini, lemon juice, garlic and salt in a small bowl and mix until smooth. Mix in yogurt and cilantro and stir well to combine (see Tip). Add more lemon juice, if desired. Transfer to a bowl to serve.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
