RECIPE BACKSTORY
My boyfriend's stepmother introduced this recipe to me...I think it's from one of her old cook books. It was sooooo yummy, I had to learn how to make it! :-D I usually do a half-recipe because it's enough for at least 20 people. A full recipe would be a mountain of dip! I also omit the almonds, but imagine they'd be very good in it...and I also add a little more garlic and dijon mustard, just to give it a little bit of a kick...but I don't measure that.
