Recipe for Sweet Tahini Sauce

The tahini sauce is sweet and savoury at the same time. Since tahini is a sesame paste that has a strong savoury flavour, it can sometimes taste bitter if eaten alone. However, when mixed with a sweetener like maple syrup or agave with a little lemon, the bitterness completely goes away and you are just left with a perfect combination of savoury and sweet tahini sauce.

This is my go-to tahini dressing that I put on… everything!

    I tried this sauce recipe as a dressing for salad and I was not disappointed! Honestly, you could try it on anything! It isnt extremely sweet, but just the right amount of flavour that makes you want more.
