Yogurt Tahini Lemon Sauce is a quick, flavorful condiment perfect with lamb dishes, simple salads, and rice pilafs. It's a real stand-out with Minted Lamb Meatballs or drizzled on a Fattoush Salad. I like to use whole milk yogurt in general but particularly in sauces. Low-fat and nonfat versions tend to have stabilizers or thickeners, which can make the final texture of the sauce less than ideal.
It keeps covered and chilled for up to a week.
1 cup plain unsweetened yogurt
2 to 3 tablespoons tahini (ground sesame paste)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Fine sea salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste, optional
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
In a medium bowl, mix the yogurt, tahini, and lemon juice together until smooth. Getting the tahini and yogurt to a smooth state will require a bit of attention, so make sure to work them together.
Add salt to taste, and pepper, if you like.
