Sumac Tahini Sauce

In This Recipe


  1. Make the sumac tahini. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the tahini, sumac, garlic, and lemon juice; add the water until you acquire desired consistency. Set aside or refrigerate until ready to use (you may need a little more water to thin out the sauce after it's been refrigerated).
  2. Add all the salad ingredients to a large bowl. Add desired amount of tahini sauce, and toss to distribute evenly.
