This is sort of an Italian/Mediterranean hybrid sauce, which takes the best parts of Italian cooking (olive oil, garlic) and blends them with bright Mediterranean flavors (tahini, lemon).  The result  is a melt-in-your-mouth creamy sauce with a wonderful balance of salty/fatty/acidic flavor.

Tahini, or a paste made from sesame seeds, is something we always keep in our pantry.  Its one of the staple ingredients in hummus, so I always keep a jar on hand when I am craving a quick Instant Pot hummus!  You can normally find tahini in the Mediterranean section of your grocery store and Trader Joes has a really great inexpensive variety that we use.
