Tahini sauce works wonderfully with any grilled meats. If you’re planning on barbecuing soon, we suggest making the sauce at least a day or two in advance. In order to make the recipe, you’ll need kosher salt, garlic, plain Greek yogurt, tahini sauce, extra-virgin olive oil, lemon juice, cumin seeds, and fresh parsley. Once you have all of the ingredients, start chopping and mashing your garlic—you should end up with a paste of sorts. Then, add salt, and transfer the mixture to a new bowl. Add yogurt, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, and cumin seeds. If the mixture is too thick, add a splash of water. Once you’re finished, garnish with parsley. You can drizzle the sauce on your dish, or you can use it as a dip—it’s up to you!
