This silky dip has a delicious Asian sweet-spicy flavour that pairs well with all fresh celery, radishes and broccoli florets as well as toasted pita. Great for a dinner party hors d'oeuvres or game day crudite platter, this unique dip will surely garner raves from any guests. Try as a sandwich or pita spread as well with fresh spinach, cucumbers and tomato slices for a veggie-filled lunch. Love the flavour profile? Try this dip with peeled sweet potatoes for simple twist.
