    I spotted Vickie's review on the 'I Made It' group, and had to come in for a closer look. I have to say, I have not heard of this before, but I love baba ghanoush, so I'm most certain I will love this too! It looks and sounds fascinating! Thanks for sharing :) Bookmarked + ^5

    Wow, Ray ....and *swoon*...this looks so delicious. I have had this dish numerous times and made this dish a couple of times and I can't wait to make your version. You know, if I had the walnuts and yogurt, I'd be trying this tonight as well. Oh yum - I can't quit looking at those pictures up top. ;-)~ I will be making this very soon. Thanks! ~ Vickie

    Hi Shine. I knew our taste buds were on the same page. I love this dip! It was always part of our meze when I was growing up. I have a recipe for this posted also. I have not heard of putting onions in Muhammara before. I will try it next time and see how it tastes. Great Post........ Jim

    This sounds divine! I eat a lot of Middle Eastern food--mostly Turkish. What a great idea.

    This sounds wonderful! I could even save more time by using roasted red bell peppers in the jar if I wanted. Thanks Ray, will be making.
