Add thinly-sliced crisp apple or Asian pear, feta crumbles, kalamata olives, dried cranberries, pomegranate arils, crisp bacon bits, hard-boiled eggs slices, or whatever you like.

This is a classic Egyptian way to serve bread as a starter course, with other dips and “mezzeh” (appetizers), or alongside kebabs with a nice green salad. This is also a fun gift idea to make as a hostess gift or for holiday gift giving. Portion dukkah into small mason jars along with a nice bottle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil!
