Taratour (tahini sauce 😋)

Taratour is an amazing Lebanese tahini sauce. It’s always included when you order a “chicken kabob wrap”, however, I love it so much, I can dip bread in it or eat it off a spoon and be just as happy.

Usually I make it only with lemon juice, but I only had a little lemon and a lot of lime. The combo turned out beautifully. In the future, I will measure out the lemon only version.

Happy blending (and eating)! 😉


1/2 cup tahini *

4 1/2 tbsp lemon juice

2 tbsp lime juice

9 tbsp water

1/2 tsp + pinch salt

2 cloves crushed garlic

* I usually use an untoasted tahini; however, joyva (which is made with toasted sesame seeds) is all that is available at my local Lunardi’s market, so this time, I made it using that brand. Next time I will make this recipe with untoasted tahini, like Mid East brand, and let you know if there are any changes. ☺️
