Charred Red Bell Pepper Dipping Sauce

 Servings: 1 ½ cups

2 large red bell peppers

¼ cup whole almonds, toasted

1 garlic clove

2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

½ teaspoon kosher salt

½ cup olive oil

 

1. On an outdoor grill or on a gas cook top, using high heat, place the bell peppers directly over flame.  Using a pair of tongs, rotate the peppers until all of the skin is charred, 8-10 minutes. 

2. When the peppers are cool enough to handle, remove stems and seeds. 

3. Transfer peppers to the bowl of a food processor. Add almonds, garlic, red wine vinegar and paprika. Pulse until coarsely chopped.

4.With the processor running, slowly add oil and blend until smooth.  Serve with grilled bread. Store in an airtight container chilled up to 1 week.
