Tahini Yogurt Sauce

This tahini yogurt sauce is a classic because it's so simple and truly pairs well with everything. We typically serve it on my Mediterranean bowls, but you'll catch me adding it on sandwiches, salads or using it as a dip for pita and veggies.


– Tahini – Plain yogurt – Lemon juice – Garlic – Salt and pepper – Water

What recipes do you recommend pairing with this sauce?

My Greek meatballs, grilled chicken or even beef souvlaki would all be amazing with this! You can also use it as a topping on Mediterranean bowls, quinoa salads or as a spread on wraps/sandwiches.


This tahini yogurt sauce can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Top Tip

When using a thicker yogurt (like Greek yogurt), it is necessary to add at least 1 tablespoon of water to thin out the sauce. If you are using plain yogurt (not Greek), water may not be necessary depending on how thick you would like your sauce to be.

Where can I find tahini?

Most grocery stores will carry tahini in the nut butter or natural health food section. You can also look for it in the "international/ethnic" aisle or at Middle Eastern grocery stores.
