Vegetable Platter with Dukkah Oil

Serves 6

Total Time
20 mins

Too much dukkah, the Egyptian seasoning mix of nuts and warm spices, is a very good thing. If you keep some on hand, you're minutes away from creating an addictive appetizer for fresh vegetables and bread. Just sprinkle the seasoning blend generously over olive oil and dunk away. You can buy dukkah at well-stocked grocery stores and online, or make the blend for Chicken and Grape Salad (you'll have enough to make both that recipe and this one).
