Found it! It's Dukkah

Thanks to SarahKate at Abercrombie & Feast, the recipe I wanted has been found. It's called Dukkah, and I plan to make some as soon as I get back home (we're still on our long camping trip). I'll make some changes - the recipe I found called for, among other things, hazelnuts, fennel, and mint - none of which I like or were in the dukkah I had at Kokanee Cafe. I'll use almonds like they did.

Thanks, SarahKate!

Looking for a recipe

We ate dinner on my birthday at the Kokanee Cafe in Camp Sherman. Before the meal, the waitress brought out a small plate on which she had placed a little pitcher of olive oil and a container of a mixture she called doha. I even asked her to spell it. It had roasted chopped almonds in it, along with some "middle eastern" spices (her words). We were also given some slices of crusty bread. We were told to put some of the olive oil on the bread, then some of the doha - the olive oil was to help keep it on the bread.

Has anyone heard of this? I would LOVE to get a recipe for it.
