This garlicky tahini sauce is traditionally served with chicken kebabs, but we loved it with the beef kebabs as well.

  • 2 cloves
    garlic, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon
    kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup
  • 7 tablespoons
    lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons
  1. Mash garlic and salt in a medium bowl using the back of a spoon until a paste forms. Whisk in tahini, lemon juice and water.
