Roasted red pepper dip & a Canada Day giveaway!

Roasted Red Pepper Dip | A Dash of Compassion

I consider myself a dip girl.

There isn’t a week that goes by when I’m not peeling carrots or slicing cucumber to use only as a vehicle for scooping up salsa, homemade bean dip or, when in a pinch, my favorite store-bought hummus. These dips add the right amount of pizzaz when spooned on top of salad bowls or spread across lunch wraps, too. With my love of all things dippy, let’s just say my food processor has had it’s fair share of work over the years.

But let’s be real. One can only eat so much bean dip, which is why I decided to change things up a bit with this roasted red pepper dip. It’s a super simple recipe that can be made in mere minutes in your food processor. I took the easy way out and used jarred roasted red peppers, but feel free to roast your own if you’ve got the time and inclination. The coconut milk adds just the right amount of creaminess without being overly coconutty, and the lime juice and cilantro add a Mexican twist.

I think this dip will be making an appearance during Canada Day celebrations on July 1st. Speaking of which, I have a fantastic giveaway for you!
