Ingredients
  • 16 ounces in-shell Diamond of California Jumbo Walnuts
  • ¾ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ garlic clove, finely minced
  • 1½ tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2-3 tablespoons everything bagel seasoning
  • Crackers or fresh veggies for serving
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 325 F. Place the in-shell walnuts on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes.
  2. Once they're cool enough to handle, shell them and put them in a high speed blender* with the water, lemon juice + zest, tahini, sea salt, garlic clove and puree until smooth. *If you'd like to garnish with some chopped walnuts, set aside about 3 walnuts to coarsely chop and sprinkle over the finished dip.
  3. Heap into a shallow bowl and use the back of your spoon to create a swirl. Drizzle with the olive oil, paprika, everything seasoning and the chopped walnuts (if using) and serve with crackers or fresh veggies!
