This recipe combines tahini, silan, chili garlic sauce, and curry powder to create a spicy-sweet-savory sauce that leaves your taste buds craving more. It’s called the “Goes with Everything Tahini Sauce” because it literally goes with everything! It pairs especially well with barbecued shrimp and chicken skewers, burgers, bowls, and veggies. You can even thin the sauce out to make a delectable dressing. Many thanks to Jamie Vespa of Dishing Out Health for this versatile sauce that has become one of our favorites.

This Mayo-free Tahini Coleslaw is a more nutritious and flavorful alternative to the typical slaw you’d pick up at the grocery store. Even the coleslaw skeptics will love this version!
