From Italian Cooking and Living, February/March 2004

  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup shelled pistachio nuts
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 1 potato, peeled, chopped and simmered until tender
  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar

In a food processor, combine the almonds, pistachios and garlic. With the machine running, add the olive oil in a slow, steady stream. Add the parsley, potato and vinegar, and process just until smooth. Add more olive oil if necessary. Season with salt and pepper, and transfer to a bowl. Serve as a dip with crackers or spread on slices of toasted bread. Serves 4
