Delicious muhammara! I love it! I subbed a freshly roasted bell pepper for jarred however. Served on a platter with Recipe #17977, cucumbers slices with dill and carrot slices. The top of the spread was garnished with fresh parsley, walnuts, lemon zest and a light sprinkle of sumac. Reviewed for Best of 2011.
