    Serves: 3


    Units: US | Metric

    • 3/4 cup tahini
    • 1/4 cup date syrup (date molasses, dibis in Arabic, found in some Middle Eastern shops)

    • ground cinnamon, to garnish
    • apple, sliced, to serve
    • pita bread, cut into wedges to serve


    1. 1
      Pour the tahini on a serving platter.
    2. 2
      Drizzle or pour date syrup in circles and swirl with the edge of a spoon to make a pretty pattern.
    3. 3
      Toast sesame seeds in a dry pan and sprinkle over top (this is what warms it up slightly).
    4. 4
      Sprinkle on ground cinnamon and serve immediately with sliced apples and pita wedges to dip.

      Loved it! I would never have thought about using tahini as a base for a dip, but this was wonderful! I didn't have date syrup, so I used maple syrup. This was fantastic, and looks so fancy with no effort at all. Will be impressing guests with it soon!

      I don't dole out 5,000 star reviews like Halloween candy but this one earns them all! The ratio of tahini to dibs was probably closer to 60/40. Used Oregon-made pita and Washington-grown apples! A truly amazing recipe and I thank you for posting this recipe!
