A creamy, wholesome dip that marries the sweetness of the red pepper and heartiness of the walnuts in an easy appetizer.
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 2 TBL olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 TBL parsley
  • ½ tsp salt and pepper
  • 8 oz roasted red peppers (I like the ones already sliced; found where olives and pickles are in your store)
  1. Start by toasting the walnuts and halved garlic in a sheet pan under the broiler for 3-4 minutes. Leave the rack about 5 inches from the heat.
  2. Add the toasted walnuts, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper to a food processor and pulse 4-5 times.
  3. Add red peppers (none of the liquid) and turn processor on for 10-20 seconds.
  4. Scrape down sides and turn processor on with opening in lid off and stream in oil.
  5. Add a few chopped red pepper slices to the top after scooping into bowl, if desired.
