Tahini, as we know, is a sesame paste widely used in Arabic, Israeli and other Eastern cuisines. The most basic use of tahini is a white sauce that resembles mayonnaise in consistency, also called Tahini. This sauce is used practically everywhere. It is used to dress meat and egg dishes, salads and vegetables, sandwiches and pita bread, hummus, etc. You could say that without it, the cuisine would not be truly oriental.
Making the sauce is very simple. All that you need is tahini, cold water, salt, and lemon juice. But as always, you still need to know the principles and proportions of the ingredients to get the perfect result!

In a medium bowl, pour water and lemon juice, plus add some salt and tahini. Start mixing it all fairly intensively in a circular motion with a whisk but do not whip it. You will see the magic happen before your eyes. The mixture will start turning white and thickening. After a while, you will get a white sauce, the consistency of which is slightly thinner than mayonnaise. Taste it and adjust the salt and lemon juice. If you want a thicker consistency, add a little more tahini, but for more liquid consistency, add water.
