Why we love it
Tahini yogurt dressing is a creamy and zesty sauce that is great for salads or as a dipping sauce. It is made by combining Greek yogurt with Middle-eastern tahini, garlic, lemon juice and salt.
But the key is a touch of shallots or onion powder for a slightly sweet yet zingy addition to the sauce.
The flavors combine in the best way possible, with a tangy and almost nutty taste that can liven up any meal.
