Tahini Curry Sauce Recipe

This Tahini Curry Sauce is a staple at Realm Food Co. in Parksville, and is extremely addictive. It can be used as a marinade for chicken before tossing it on the grill (or afterwards), as a sauce for sauteed vegetables, tossed with pasta or as a salad dressing on your favourite mixed greens. It is also excellent as a sauce on your own personal version of “Buddha Bowls”.
