Tahini Sauce

I love the flavor of sesame and the intense nuttiness of tahini.  I’ve developed this easy sauce to bring it to a variety of dishes.  Using both sumac and lemon juice gives it a layered citrusy freshness.  This simple sauce is delicious spooned over pan-roasted cauliflower or baked chicken or served as a dip with crunchy raw vegetables.  I hope you enjoy it too.
