Neni saves leftover bread to make this dish. She cuts off the crust and makes breadcrumbs, and she freezes ½ cup sized hunks of old bread to makes this. Neni likes this dip smooth; her husband Stathis likes it coarser. Try both: to make it smooth, use a blender, to make it coarser, pulse to grind in a food processor. This dip holds 2 to 3 weeks in the fridge, and is served as an accompaniment to vegetables. Neni says it doesn’t go with proteins.
