The Best Lemon Tahini Sauce

IMG_9123.JPG

I don’t mean to brag, but I think I’ve nailed the lemon tahini sauce formula. I’ve tried so many other recipes and while each one was tasty in its own right, they were missing something- either saltiness, sweetness, or umami flavour. This one has all three in spades and I think you are going to love it! Plus, it comes together inΒ maybeΒ 90 seconds and makes a sizeable batch, enough for drizzling on salads, wraps, bowls, and straight into your mouth for a solid few days.
