Tachinosalata – Sesame Dip

I bought all the dips for my Greek Cypriot Meze, but I did make one, my favourite – tachinosalata which is made from a sesame paste called tahini and is available to buy in supermarkets these days.


Tachinosalata [Sesame Dip]
Yield: 6
  • 75g tahini (sesame) paste
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • cold water
  • lemon juice
  • olive oil
  • salt
  1. Stir the tahini and crushed garlic together.
  2. Add a water, lemon juice and olive oil a little at a time and mix well - you want it to be the consistency of cream - not too thick, but not too runny either!
  3. Season with salt.
