Garlic Walnut Dip

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Rita1652

This unusual, very inexpensive, quick, and easy dip or sauce uses whole wheat toast crumbs and walnuts for body. The flavor comes from our favorite--garlic, lemon juice and olive oil. It can be used as a sauce for fish or spooned over slices of fresh mozzarella and tomatoes. Serve it in a small bowl surrounded by red pepper and zucchini strips. Top it with chopped toasted walnuts or parsley. Imagine you are in Greece!

mmMMmm, this is delicious. I didn't have a lemon so I used a lime and didn't have the greenery either. I think next time, I might use a few more walnuts but even with the substitution and lack of ingredient, this is really tasty. For those who already have crumbs made up, it's about 1/4 cup for each slice of bread. I used a cup so that's probably why I needed more walnuts, duh. Thanks for posting it. GladyRuth
