Bower, what you described (tahini+garlic+lemon juice, without the soy sauce) is a very famous and popular Lebanese dressing we call "taratour." We use it on MANY Things:
1) Shawarma
2) falafel
3) char-broiled fish
4) the base for hummus (chick peas) and baba-gannooj (char-broiled eggplant)
5) appetizer dip dressing with boiled lima beans, swiss chard stems...
6) plain

I usually make a large batch and keep some in the fridge. It's really addictive.

Taratour - thanks Taboule! I've been eating it for nearly forty years and didn't know it had a name.

Every middle eastern food I've ever eaten has been delicious. Falafel is another one which I really love. I don't have a good recipe though! Please share.
I recall I bought a box of "falafel mix" at some point and although I followed the directions it didn't come out as it should at all. Surely I could do better from scratch?
