Recipe for Greek Style Walnut Sauce

Written by in , Comments Off on Recipe for Greek Style Walnut Sauce

Walnuts grow abundantly in Greece so they appear in many recipes. This sauce is typically served with seafood, poultry, pork, and even vegetable dishes.

Greek Style Walnut Sauce (Karithosaltsa) Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups shelled walnut pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cups broth, divided (use any kind you have on hand, but lighter broths taste best, like chicken)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

Directions to Prepare Greek Walnut Sauce:

Place the walnuts in the bowl of a food processor. Cover the food processor and pulse until the walnuts are crumbled.

Place the bread crumbs in a bowl and pour 1/4 cup of the broth over it. Let them soak for five minutes. Add the bread crumbs to the food processor and pulse for a minute or two until the two ingredients are incorporated.

Pulse in the rest of the broth, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, and nutmeg. Keep pulsing until smooth. The sauce will keep for a few days in the refrigerator.
