15 Min


Stove Top


3 lb
small new potatoes, scrubbed
2 Tbsp
kosher salt plus 1/2 tsp. divided
1 bunch
fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped
1/2 c
tahini (room temperature)
1/4 c
fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp
room temperature water, plus more as needed
2 Tbsp
fresh parsley, chopped
2 tsp
extra-virgin olive oil

Directions Step-By-Step

Place the potatoes in a large pot, add 2 tbsp. kosher salt and cover with cold water by about 2 inches. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Let the potatoes cool to room temperature in the water, 1 1/2 - 2 hours. Drain and cut the potatoes in half.
Combine cilantro, tahini, lemon juice and water in a food processor and process until very smooth, adding additional room temperature water by the tablespoon as needed for a smooth sauce.
Toss the potatoes in a large bowl with the tahini sauce, parsley and the remaining 1/2 tsp. salt. Drizzle with oil just before serving.
