Walnut Red Pepper Dip

Walnut Red Pepper Dip

If you usually serve spinach dip or hummus at friendly gatherings or dinner parties, try switching it up with this tasty Walnut Red Pepper Dip. Walnuts contain anti-inflammatory and antioxidant phytonutrients while red peppers are a great source of vitamin C, iron, vitamin B6 and folate. Serve this dip with Savory Flax Crackers, Crunchy Sesame Crackers, Cheesy Paleo Crackers or even sliced veggies for a perfect appetizer your guests will love.

  • 1 garlic clove, minced ( or more to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
