Shawarma White Sauce

I’m in love with this flavorful Mediterranean sauce! I first heard about this sauce when I was watching the Today Show, one morning. It was shared by Ayesha Nurdjaja, the executive chef of Shuka in NYC. It’s awesome on chicken, as a dip, on falafel and as a salad dressing! It is addictive!

This sauce is great with chicken, falafel & as a salad dressing. I found this recipe originally on the Today Show food website. Just search for Chicken Shawarma. I made slight adjustments to the original recipe.
