Taratore (tahini-lemon dressing)
Updated: Mar 25
Taratore is a Lebanese tahini dressing and most likely a widespread recipe with variations in Middle-eastern and Mediterranean cultures. It's made with only a handful of ingredients. All you need is tahini paste and lemon with some water as the base and the dressing turns out so delicious and creamy. It makes for a delightful addition to baked or fried fish, salads and roast vegetable dishes. It's a staple in my kitchen because of how easy it is to make. You can stick to the basic ingredients, or make it fancy by adding a sweetener like maple syrup or garlic for an extra punch.
