Versatile Roasted Red Pepper Sauce
I found this recipe at Mariano’s, my new favorite grocery store, so I have to give them most of the credit for it. However, I’ve added an ingredient of my own choosing that I think is quite additive indeed. For those of you who are familiar with FoodStuffs roasted red pepper dip, this dip will satiate your craving for it. Try serving it as a dip for pita chips, veggies, or over (drum-roll please), roasted fish (think tilapia or the like).
3 TBSP. roasted red peppers (the jarred kind), roughly chopped
1/4 cup mayonnaise (light is fine)
1/4 cup sour cream (again, light is fine)
2 oz. cream cheese (again with the “light” – it’s fine)
1/2 TBSP. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. lemon zest
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/8 tsp. onion powder
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp. celery salt
Here’s how you make the sauce: Combine all of the above ingredients in a blender and serve. Yes, it’s that easy. Enjoy!
