Tahini Yogurt Sauce

yogurt tahini sauce with whisk

Tahini yogurt sauce is one of my favorite condiments, especially when it comes to Middle Eastern dishes. This sauce is super easy to make, taking just a few minutes start to finish. Not only does it work great as a sauce, but it can easily be a quick dip or even a salad dressing!

I originally made this sauce to pair with a roast eggplant middle eastern style, but later found out I could serve it with crudite or even drizzle over some zucchini fritters! In fact, if you make this recipe and pair it with something delicious please let me know in the comments down below!

Tahini Yogurt Sauce Ingredients

My tahini yogurt sauce recipe only uses six ingredients, so it’s very easy to shop for. Not to mention everything is pretty much available at most grocery stores or markets.

TAHINI YOGURT SAUCE INGREDIENTS

1 cup (250 ml) Yogurt – the best would be Greek stye yogurt but you can use regular if that’s all you can find.

1/2 cup (120 ml) Olive Oil – try to use good quality extra virgin olive oil if you can, as this sauce is not being cooked.

1 generous tbsp Tahini – you can add more to taste later if you feel it needs it, but start with 1 tbsp for now.

3 cloves Garlic – minced

1 tbsp Lemon Juice

Pinch of Salt – adjust to taste after whisking.

In a bowl add all the ingredients and whisk to combine. Depending on the tahini you use, you may find the dressing too thick and not drizzly enough. This is okay, just add a tbsp of water at a time until you get to your desired consistency.

I find the perfect consistency is when the sauce drizzles off the whisk similar to cake batter. This recipe makes more sauce than you will need, but it stores very well in a tight jar in the fridge for at least a couple weeks.
