I put it on falafel. And I'm not a huge salad eater, but it would make a good salad dressing.

My favourite sandwich: rye bread, tahini, cucumber, crated carrot and jalapenos. Onion and olives are great too.

Mmmm tahini really does make a great salad dressing -- especially for hearty things like pasta (whole wheat is best), cabbage (great change from regular mayo-based coleslaw dressing), and strongly-flavored veggies like kale, broccoli and red peppers.  I usually mix it with soy sauce, a little chili oil, and a little sesame oil, then thin it out with water.  I add pepper to taste and often a little bit of salt (seems weird since soy has a lot of sodium, but I swear by it...).  You can also make a tahini-lemon dressing.  I crush a clove of garlic with some salt, then add the zest and juice of a lemon, a little more salt and some pepper, and then the tahini, and some water to thin it.  You can also add a little olive oil if you'd like.

hey

if u make thina (thini) like in da reply above me, its also good to add some spices like paprika,cumin,tumeric -those are like basic when u make thina with lemon juice and garlic...
also goes good - a little nutmeg, or baharat, or zaatar/hyssop mix.

two more ideas:

 - roasted eggplants with thina

  you roast da eggplants on da stove or in da oven/grill,
  i like it better on da stove...
  you roast them whole, without peeling them or cutting da top.
  if they're on da stove, roast until they're soft and da skin is             
  burned and crumpled. in da oven, roast until they're soft and
  da skin gets deeper colors in it.
  when they're ready, let them cool and then peel them and put
  the soft inside in a bowl. add thina, lots of crushed garlic,
  lemon juice, a few drops of olive oil and spices and mix them         
  together.
  it goes good with bread or pitot and it taste really good when
  da eggplants are still hot... Roll Eyes

- u can add thina when u make vegetables in da oven
  i mean like potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, tomatoes,
  cauliflower, eggplants, unpeeled garlic cloves and all kind of
  roots...
  u cut them in to big pieces, mix them with olive oil and spices,
  add some bay leaves, cover them and put them in da oven.
  after a while when they're close to being ready, take them out.
  mix in a bowl thina and water, to make da thina really thin.
  pour it all over da vegetables and put them back in oven
  without da cover and bake them until they're ready.
  its really good... Wink

Before I was vegan I used to have tahini and honey sandwiches.
Babaganoush/roasted eggplant spread is another good one.

You can email them for a free little zine-sized cookbook all about tahini. It was from there that I learned how to properly prepare it. Before that, my roommate and I were using it straight from the can and wondering why it wasn't like the kind we ordered in any restaurant before. We're special. Grin

How about cucumber and Greek yogurt dip? If your vegan you could substitute with soy yogurt and agar-agar.

First of all, tahini on bread with honey or jam or even (when the sweet tooth calls) chocolate sauce. Yum.
Second of all, Glory sauce, the best sauce in the multiverse is made out of tahini, apple cider, brewers yeast, soy sauce, garlic, and olive oil all blendified together.
Enjoy.

How long does tahini usually keep after you've opened the jar?  I have some in my fridge at the moment, but am unsure if it's still good.

Thanks!

If it looks, smells and tastes normal, it's fine.

I had this eggplant wrap from Trader Joes (cooked eggplant & other veggies wrapped in tortilla) and it came with a tahini dipping sauce which tasted amazing together.

It really is amazing.

I found this recipe (http://lifestyle.msn.com/your-home/food-entertaining/recipes/recipe_detaileat.aspx?st=k&rid=9869), and I haven't tried it yet but it looks delicious.

My husband -a carnivore - and I - a vegetarian - LOVE tahini!
I just finished our last container - Damn - I guess I'll HAVE to buy some more.
Question - Have any of you run into a problem with your tahini separating. It didn't bother me until I realized that it was almost impossible to stir it back together.

Just thought of another thing to try. Carmelize onions (2 big ones maybe) mix in the tahini and eat it over rice/pasta...
