Serves 8


This unusual dip or sauce uses whole-wheat toast crumbs and walnuts for body. The flavor comes from favorite Mediterranean ingredients - garlic, lemon juice and olive oil. The dip can be used as a sauce for fish or spooned over slices of fresh mozarella and tomatoes. Serve it in a small bowl surrounded by red pepper and zucchini strips. Then, imagine you're in Greece!


  • 3 slices whole-wheat bread, toasted
  • ¼ cup walnuts
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¾ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place the toast in a food processor and process into fine crumbs.
  2. With the motor running, add the walnuts and garlic and process until they are ground fine.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients with the motor running and process until smooth, adding more water if the mixture seems too thick.
  4. Scrape the mixture into a bowl, and season to taste with salt and pepper., (c) 2006 Weil Lifestyle, LLC, used with permission
