North Cyprus Cousine - Mezes

Tahin Salatasi

Extremely appetising and refreshing, this can be served with hot pitta or bread to be dipped in. It is a very Cypriot dish which is also offered along with kebabs, or with mezze.


5 tablespoons Tahini paste
150 ml (1/4 pint) warm water
1-2 cloves of garlic
6 tablespoons lemon juice
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
Salt to taste

To Garnish

1 tablespoon chopped parsley A few black olives


Combine in a blender the tahini, water, garlic and salt and blend. Slowly add the lemon and oil, alternating them, while the blades are in motion, until the mixture looks creamy in colour and texture.

Adjust the seasoning and serve in a bowl with the parsley and olives sprinkled on top.
