Extremely easy to make and very colorful. I reduced the olive oil to just 2 Tbsp of olive oil as the walnuts are also oily. I used a food processor and just processed until everything was in small chunks. I roasted both the bell pepper and the garlic cloves ( to mellow the flavor of the garlic) and garnished the dip with chopped pistachios. Flavor Burst!!!! Interesting side note: A very flavorful bread topping such as this will actually reduce your bread consumption. The little spoonfuls of healthy topping will slow down the consumption of bread. I found I only ate a fraction as much bread. Don't let the pomegranate molasses put you off. Where I live you can buy it in a number of places. My wife got a 10 ounce bottle for $2.49 at a small Arabic grocery stand. As pungent as it is, I will get lots of dishes from my bottle. Jim in So Calif item not reviewed by moderator and published
