What is Tahini?

Tahini is made of ground sesame and a staple in many Middle Eastern cuisines. It's thick and you've seen it in its simplest form in many of my recipes for homemade hummus. When you add a few extra pantry staples to tahini, you can create the most incredible tahini sauce. That sauce can be used as a salad dressing, for dipping pita bread or pita chips, adding to roasted veggies or throwing it into a wrap etc. It's wildly versatile and really easy to make.

What is in this easy Tahini Sauce:

  • Tahini
  • Lemon
  • Garlic
  • Salt
  • Water
  • a splash of olive oil

  • cup tahini
  • 4-5 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 3 cloves garlic
  • ¼ cup water, plus more as needed
  • kosher salt to taste


  • In a blender or food processor, blend together the tahini, lemon, oil, and garlic until smooth.

If you're making a triple batch of this, you might need to add a few teaspoons of water every time you use it to thin it out! Tahini is thick and absorbs liquid easily so don't be afraid to thin it out if needed with some water.
