How to Make Potatoes with Green Tahini Sauce


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
