Slightly non-standard tahini sauce

The balsamic vinegar gives a rich, complex flavor.

balsamic vinegar
honey (optional)

Dilute tahini to tolerable viscosity. Add balsamic vinegar until its acetic note is almost explicit. (Very roughly, 1/2 t. per glopping spoonful of tahini.) Include a bit of honey if you like.

(Don't try this substitution when seasoning tabouli -- the result is peculiar.)
