This different-sounding recipe caught my attention, so I'm posting here for safe-keeping.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. HAZELNUT PREP: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place the hazelnuts on a cookie sheet and into the oven.
  3. When the hazelnuts become aromatic, approximately 7-8 minutes, remove from oven. Let them cool slightly, then rub vigorously with a clean kitchen towel to remove the outer skin.
  4. Return to oven for 3-4 more minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
  5. Using a food processor coarsely grind the hazelnuts. Be sure not to over process; leave them slightly chunky.
  6. GARLIC PREP: Place the garlic cloves on another cookie sheet.
  7. Drizzle with olive oil and roast the garlic until they are softened and golden brown. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
  8. SALSA PREP: In a medium stainless steel bowl combine the remaining ingredients adding the hazelnuts and garlic.
  9. Mix well and cover. Let the flavors blend for 1 hour before use.
