What you'll have to do

Step 1

Stir 1/4 cup cold water into 1/2 cup tahini until it thickens, a seemingly magic transformation that deomstrates the food chemistry involving the hydrophilic properties of certain carbohydrate molecules (the water-loving carbs latch onto the water; add more water and the tahini gets runny again).

Step 2

Mix in 2 tablespoons garlic sauce, 2 tablespoons olive oil and 2 tablespoons vinegar.
