This had an interesting flavor; very different. The almonds made it thicker. It tasted better the next day. A nice lunch with celery sticks. I look for simple lunches with protein. I also added a teaspoon of balsamic vinegar. Thank You Engrossed.

Tasty. I used Balkan (thick) yogurt, blanched sliced almonds pulverized in a small blender, flat leaf parsley, unrefined extra virgin olive oil, cayenne, to taste, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, plum tomato, plus the rest.
