Tangy Garlic Almond Dip

Ciao Friends,

The following recipe is similar to a hummus without the chickpeas!  It’s something that I tried at Cibreo Trattoria in Florence, Italy that I needed to try and duplicate as it was so good.

The following recipe is without knowing precise ingredients and/or measurements, however I have made it already several times and it is delicious.  Enjoy as an appetizer on bread, veggies etc…I personally enjoy dipping jicama, radish, and cucumbers in this dip!


-1 cup soaked almonds for a minimum of 6 hours to overnight

-2/3 cloves of garlic or to your liking

-1/4 cup lemon juice

-1/4 cup white wine vinegar

-1/2 cup olive oil

-water to your liking depending on how thick you prefer the texture

-fresh herbs such as tarragon, parsley, chives, basil.  Pick your flavor(s)!


Blend the first 2 ingredients in a food processor or blender until consistency is sand like.  Add the following ingredients and blend together until the consistency is to your liking.  Buon appetito!
