Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw tahini
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice, plus more to taste
  • Ice water
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt, plus more as needed
  • 1 small garlic clove, grated or minced

Steps

  1. Pour the raw tahini into a medium bowl and add the lemon juice.
  2. Mix with a fork or whisk until the color turns a shade lighter. That texture may become weird and lumpy; don’t worry this is okay.
  3. Gradually whisk in about ½ cup water will make a thick dip; whisk in another ¼ cup or so to make a thinner sauce, if you’d like.
  4. Keep tinkering with water, lemon juice, and tahini until you get the consistency and flavor you like.
  5. Whisk in the salt and garlic.
  6. Taste and adjust your seasonings.
