  • 2 Dice up tomatoes and cucumbers and combine them together in a medium bowl.
  • 3 Place garlic, hot pepper and salt in a mortar.
  • 4 Smash until mushed.
  • 5 Tahini dressing takes a bit of stirring to become creamy so, you can either add tahini,and water in a bowl by itself and mix or you can add to the same bowl with the cucumbers and tomatoes.
  • 6 Add lemon in increments to achieve desired tartness.
  • 7 Stir the dressing until smooth and creamy.

  • 11 Serve with a swirl of olive oil on top.
  • 12 Enjoy!
