Eat the rainbow! Such a good motto, and one of the best dips to eat with veggies is this Lightened Up Romesco Dip! It’s made with roasted red peppers and almonds. It isn’t spicy but has a really great flavor. It is a little smoky, sweet, a little nutty — it’s the best.
The dip has a bit of a thicker texture so it’s great for dipping with veggies or crackers. And the best news: You probably have everything to make this in your pantry! I lightened mine up by using less oil than most recipes call for. You totally don’t need it here! I make big batches of this and use it on everything — eggs, sandwiches, wraps, grilled chicken, and veggies…you literally can’t go wrong.
I made this for a pool party; the perfect light snack for a hot day. I added some whole wheat baguette slices and everything bagel pretzel thins for my non-veggie-loving friends. Are you getting your veggies in today?! I hope you’ll give it a try!
