4 tablespoons of lemon juice
1 clove of garlic
Sea salt and ground pepper
1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
Put the tahini into a bowl. Add the water and mix with a whisk or spoon. At first the tahini will get a little sticky and will be slow to absorb the water, but keep stirring until the mix is smooth. Add the lemon juice, olive oil, minced garlic, and salt and pepper, and mix.
The sauce will keep for 4 to 5 days in the refrigerator. Add a little water as needed if the mixture appears too thick.
