Cleaning out the pantry and the refrigerator is something that I do pretty often. Not just because I like to get rid of the bad, but also because I like to see what kind of concoctions I can make from what I’ve got on hand. This dip is one of those.

I thought about it for a minute and decided that it could use a little nutty kick. Where would I get that nutty kick? Tahini of course. One quick stir and a bite later and I knew I found what the dip was missing.
