Just came up with a new dip for Sunday brunch. It is simple to assemble, and goes good with chips, and/or pita bread, or whatever you choose to dip into it.

Recipes like this one typically use a diced tomato or two in the mix. I decided to roast some grape tomatoes, and pile them on top of the dip.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
