Epic Tahini Lemon Garlic Sauce

This Epic Tahini Lemon Garlic Sauce is amazing on salads and Buddha bowls. It was an instant hit with the first two groups that went through our free #PFYH 4-Day Challenge. When we find something we love, we tend to stick with it. This is one of those go-to favorites.

Tahini is made from toasted, ground sesame seeds. It’s wildly popular in Mediterranean dishes like hummus and babaganoush. Tahini is a rich source of the trace mineral copper that helps with iron absorption and supports healthy bones.

This sauce has a nice “twang” from the lemon and apple cider vinegar. The garlic is strong, so if you prefer more of a mild garlic flavor, you can roast wrap a few cloves in foil and bake for 30 minutes at 375°F before adding to the blender. Also, you could substitute with 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder.

Epic Tahini Lemon Garlic Sauce has 4 key ingredients:

  1. Tahini
  2. Lemon
  3. Garlic
  4. Apple Cider Vinegar

If you’re using this sauce as a salad dressing, I recommend adding a little more water, about 2 Tablespoons, to thin out the consistency. If using as a topping for a Buddha bowl, I think the consistency is on point.
