Taratour is a sauce that is surprisingly easy to make and yet so versatile. Tahini, a sesame paste, combined with garlic and lemon juice makes a delicious sauce that you can use on many dishes. Very often taratour is drizzled over Shawarma (marinated shredded beef or chicken), Falafel or baked fish.
