Calories 101kcal


  • 1 cup full-fat Greek Yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons tahini stirred well
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper


  • Place all ingredients in a bowl and whisk until combined.
  • Taste for seasoning and add in more if you like.


  • If you prefer a thicker texture, you can line a colander (placed in a bowl) with cheesecloth, place yogurt in it, and let it drain overnight in the fridge. The consistency of the sauce made with the drained yogurt will be much thicker, making it perfect to use as a spread for burgers or as a dip to serve with fresh vegetables.
  • Like most yogurt based dressings, this sauce is best on the day it is made. However, if you keep in an airtight jar, it would still be good the next day. Be sure to give it a good shake before use.
