Garlic Walnut Dip
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!
- Ready In:
- 3 slices whole wheat bread, toasted
- 1⁄4 cup walnuts
- 4 garlic cloves, chopped
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 3⁄4 cup water
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley leaves
- salt and pepper
- Place the toast in a food processor and process into fine crumbs, with the motor running, add the walnuts and garlic and process until they are ground fine.
- Add the remaining ingredients with the motor running and process until smooth, adding more water if the mixture seems too thick.
- Scrape the mixture into a bowl, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately ot it will turn dark in color.
