Whip up this dip in under ten minutes. It's fresh tasting and flavorful — just right for summer soirees. This flavorful dip is perfect for company yet simple enough — and light enough — to be enjoyed on a regular basis. Roasted bell peppers blended with tangy sour cream give the dip layers of flavor while basil and cilantro add a fresh and herbaceous note. Serve it with toasted pita wedges, whole grain crackers or fresh vegetable crudités for a fun starter or serve with grilled shrimp skewers as a delightful dipping sauce. If you want to kick up the smoky flavor, sprinkle a bit of smoked paprika over the top as a garnish and flavor booster.
