Walnut Dipping Sauce

  • Yield 12-14 appetizer servings or 6 main course servings


1-1/2 cup California walnut pieces, toasted
1-1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/3 cup lime juice
1-1/2 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons red chili paste*
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, or salt to taste
1/2 cup hot water


  1. To make the walnut dipping sauce, put the walnuts in a food processor and, with the machine running, add the oil.  Process until thick and pasty, stopping a few times to scrape down the sides of the container.  Add the soy sauce, lime juice, sugar, chili paste, honey and salt, and process until thick and smooth.  Add enough hot water, 2 tablespoons at a time, to make a pourable but not runny sauce–the right consistency for dipping.
