Turkish Tarator Sauce
This delicious and incredibly versatile sauce is traditionally served with sautéed fish but why stop there? Use it as a dip for raw veggies or slather it over grilled fish or veggies. It keeps beautifully in the refrigerator for over a week. But be sure to keep it in a tightly closed container or else your fridge will smell like garlic. Yum.
- 2 slices firm white bread
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 cup walnuts
- A dash of lemon juice or red wine vinegar to taste
- 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- Kosher salt to taste
Cut off and discard the crusts of the bread then soak the crumb in a small bowl of water until soaking wet, then squeeze the bread dry and set aside.
In a food processor with the steel blade process the walnuts and garlic until the nuts are finely ground. Add the bread. When smooth(ish) add the oil in a slow steady stream. Add salt and either lemon juice or vinegar to taste.
