Muhammara!!! This dip is so big in flavor it punches you in the face. I fried the bread crumbs, walnuts and garlic in the olive oil before processing, which is the traditional method and makes for a somewhat more nutty flavor. Great appetizer with grilled pita and some slices of feta. I found it super easy to make as I didn't need to be too concerned about exact measurements, which makes for a great "to-taste" cooking experience.
