We use tahini on everything. It's our go-to Israeli condiment. I like it on salads and my husband even smothers his pizza in the stuff. Initially, I was appalled when he did that. Now he has to bring home extra tahini from the pizza shop. It's for me and my kids!

Serve a few spoonfuls of tahini atop the middle of a hummus platter.
