You know the feeling of finding some new something and wondering how on earth you have missed it all this time?  Such was my feeling with trying out a recipe from The New York Times which called for walnut gremolata.

So just what is gremolata which the spell checker keeps wanting to change to germinate???

It is a very simple combination of lemon zest, garlic, parsley, and a pinch of salt and it comes from the northern region of Italy.  Because of its simplicity, it lends itself to all sorts of variations, such as in the recipe for walnut gremolata.  For a very good explanation of gremolata and instructions on how to make it, click HERE.  For the recipe for walnut gremolata, click HERE.
