Tahini, a smooth sesame seed butter, adds richness and mild flavor to this sweet, savory spread.
Depending on the mood of your local grocer, you'll find the tahini near the peanut butter, in the health food section, or in the international foods aisle. Oh my! No matter where you find it, it keeps in your fridge for many months, so you don't have to search again for a long time. (I make really weird rationalizations for food!)
