Muhammara, red pepper dip with walnuts and spiced with pomegranate molasses and cumin, is one of those dishes that is far more impressive than the amount of effort that goes into it. It's a perfect go-to as a dip for parties or spread on a sandwich.
This traditional Middle Eastern condiment is difficult to find in stores; thank goodness it's easy to make at home. The flavor is explosively sweet/tart, and goes on everything from meats and fish, to salads and veggies.
Pomegranate molasses is a traditional ingredient in Middle Eastern cooking and can be found at Middle Eastern markets, or you can easily make some yourself with some pomegranate juice, sugar, and lemon.
