  1. Sauté the bread in the olive oil until golden.
  2. Toast the almonds in an oven at 350°F (175°C) about 15 minutes or in a skillet over moderately low heat until light golden, not dark brown. Remove the almonds from the pan as soon as they are golden so they do not brown further.
  3. Combine the bread, almonds, and garlic in a food processor. Grind until fine.
  4. Add the tomatoes, paprika, and cayenne. Process to a paste.
  5. With the machine running, gradually add the vinegar and then the oil in a slow stream.
  6. Adjust the seasonings with salt and pepper. Add more vinegar if required. The sauce should not be too acidic but should have a definite sharpness.
