In a medium bowl, add the tahini, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and water together and whisk until they create a luscious, smooth sauce.
When you first add the water and lemon juice to the tahini, it will thicken up.
Continue whisking for a minute or so. Add some water to make it thinner when required.
Slowly add the water and continue whisking until it reaches your desired consistency.
f you prefer a brighter sauce, add more lemon. If it is too bitter, stir in 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon maple syrup or honey. And if the flavor is too sharp, mellow it with 1/2 to 1 teaspoon olive oil.
