  1. Hi, I have the book and can't find something exactly like what you describe in the index. However, there is a "Red Pepper and Walnut Puree" recipe that does include both walnuts and pomegranate molasses. No full pomegranate seeds and no green olives anywhere. Not sure if it's what you mean. It also includes eggplant, scallions, pinenuts, bread crumbs, chiles and spices. Sound like the one you're looking for? Regardless, I haven't made this one before but it sounds fantastic so I think I will. :-) Cheers.

    1. Paula Wolfert has a great recipe for Cracked Green Olive and Walnut Salad on page 148 of "The cooking of the Eastern Mediterranean". It includes both fresh pomegranate seeds and pomegranate molasses. She says it's Turkish so maybe it's similar to the recipe in Turquoise. It is truly delicious.

      It's not a spread but more of a salad or a relish than a dip. I"m not sure if this is like Ana's at Sofra or not, but it is worth trying.
