Meatless, Luscious, Fun: San Francisco the Eaters City - Roasted Red Pepper Dressing or Dip!


I'm in San Francisco this week eating and drinking my way through the city - and oh! also learning from others in the culinary world at my professional culinary conference. Oh, the pictures I can take... of food, food and did I mention food? This is an eaters paradise. And the wine culture out here? Heaven.

Inspired by all the fabulous food and drink, I had to share my take on beautiful crunchy veggies and savory dip. This recipe is definitely a keeper. Serve it as a dressing or dip - you'll love the smoky roasty flavor of the peppers combined with the slightly salty cheese. Just the thing to get everyone in the house excited about eating their veggies!
