I love making homemade dips and sauces! I find them SO much more flavorful than the store bought ones. The other day I made some baked falafels I bought from Trader Joe’s and I wanted some tasty tahini sauce to serve them with. This is the dip I came up with. It would also be delicious to serve some taboulli salad with your tahini dip and falafels as well.photo from WhatsGoodAtTraderJoes
You can also use this as a spread for pita wraps/sandwiches, to dip pita in, crackers, veggies, chips, etc. It tastes a little like hummus but without the chickpeas.

2 cloves of garlic
3-4 tbsp lemon juice

1. Combine ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Have you ever had tahini dip before? What do you like to serve it with?
