  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 3 small, fresh hot chiles (such as jalapeño or serrano), stemmed and seeded
  • 2 large cloves garlic

  • Kosher salt, to taste

Combine all ingredients except the salt in a food processor and purée thoroughly. Transfer to a bowl and add salt to taste.

My family loves the Indian recipes from Fine Cooking - Chicken Tikki Masala, Naan and Samosas - and this Cilantro Dip is an outstanding accompaniment!
