This was a really nice sauce, went great with our felafel salad for dinner last night!
I really like this because it is not too tahinay. It has a nice light taste. I did use an organic good quality roasted tahini. We had this as dressing over cos lettuce for a simple salad. I would make this again for DH the same way. Made for Ramadan tag 2010.
Delicious! I loved the tahini in the sauce and used it with romaine lettuce leaves. Thanks! Made by a fellow Looney Spoon Phoodie for ZWT#6.
