  • Tahini: Opt for a high-quality tahini to ensure a creamy texture and robust flavor profile.
  • Lemon Juice: Freshly squeezed lemon juice is recommended for the brightest and most vibrant citrus flavor.
  • Olive Oil: Use cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil for its rich, fruity notes that complement the tahini beautifully.
