80--- Walnut and Roasted Red Pepper Dip

With Labor Day approaching, what will you bring to all of those camping trips and barbecues?  You might as well be the one to bring something healthful.  And dips are so easy to make and people eat them up.

This is one of two great dips that I will post for the holiday weekend.

The first one here is loaded with healthy fats.  The next one that I will post this week is low fat and full of flavor.

Walnut and Roasted Red Pepper Dip
Serves 8

2/3 cup walnuts
2 cups roasted red bell peppers (from a jar)
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp olive oil
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 tsp salt
Fresh ground black pepper

Place all ingredients in a large food processor and puree until smooth.  Refrigerate mixture for at least 30 minutes prior to serving.

Serve with crudites or sweet potato chips.
