Expert Tips

Serve this pretty green dip in a hollowed-out red or yellow bell pepper for a pretty presentation.

If you have a handheld immersion blender, use it for this recipe. Put ingredients in a large bowl, and puree until smooth. You’ll have more control over the process and less of a mess to clean.
