Serve this delicious sauce with falafel in pita or with fresh vegetables. Best if made a few hours in advance, but it can be served immediately. I chop the garlic, and let it rest for 5 to 10 minutes before adding the remaining ingredients. This increases the amount of allicin, a compound shown to have antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, and antiprotozoal activity.

Delicious as written but can be easily adjusted to your taste. I have made this with shwarma spices and other Middle Eastern seasoning mixes to coordinate with the dish it's used with. A staple around here! Fast easy healthful and delicious. Read More

Tasty, but too garlicky for my taste, especially since the tahini contains garlic. More lemon or lime juice would cut the garlic heat, and it could use a little honey to counter a slight bitterness. Read More
