creamy red-pepper dipping sauce


I found this recipe in the first ever Fitness magazine that I received in the mail. I cut it out and saved it, and have somehow managed to save it for about 4-5 years, and then I finally got around to trying it. I grew up dipping artichokes into melted butter. This Creamy Red-Pepper Dipping Sauce is a much healthier alternative to butter or mayonnaise, and you won't even miss the fat! I guarantee that this will be your new favorite dipping sauce for artichokes. 

Creamy Red-Pepper Dipping Sauce
Serves 4

  • 1 cup chopped roasted red peppers
  • 1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 3 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 T. balsamic vinegar
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • Salt and pepper
In a blender, combine all ingredients except salt and pepper. Puree until smooth and adjust seasoning to taste. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Not a fan of artichokes but this sounds good for dipping other things!
