Keep this dressing handy! I used a liquid yogurt in order to use it as a salad dressing. It’s simple to throw together and can be used for so many things. I might add a bit less tahini next time...

Used this recipe for falafel wraps. It was perfect.

I have never made tahini sauce in the food processor before; this was so easy! I was really pleased with this recipe, it tasted great.
