Place garlic in the work bowl of a Cuisinart® Mini Chopper or Food Processor; pulse on chop 5 times. Scrape the work bowl. Add the vinegar, tahini, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Process until smooth, about 5 seconds. With the machine running, add the oil slowly, in a steady stream, through one of the holes in the recessed area of the lid or the feed tube. After all the oil has been added, process for an additional 10 seconds. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
