Exactly the recipe my father used to make this, except for the parsley! I enjoyed this very much - thanks for posting! Made for Think Pink October 2009.

Very good recipe, Blue Rose! I used a dense sourdough bread (you can't use fluffy bread to make this dip!). Be sure to remove the crusts, you just want the sponge. I made 1/2 this amount and my husband, the taramosalata afficionado of the family said it was excellent. The parsley in the dip was new to me, and basically unobtrusive.
