    I don't know why some on this recipe & related recipe are saying the sauce is bitter unless they've not had Tahini or the spices before. This would not be meant to be a sweet dressing or sauce. I have plain Tahini, which is ground sesame seeds and I guess some might say it's bitter because it sure isn't sweet. Adding the lemon and other ingredients wouldn't make it bitter so I'm wondering if it's due to individuals liking sweet over savory dressings. I liked the dressing. Esp with the lemon.

    This sauce is amazing! Love love love it. You definitely need to add water to the recipe until the dressing is the consistency you desire from a dressing (think salad dressing). Without water, mine looked like peanut butter...
