Easter is one of my favorite holidays. No gifts, no turkey, no pressure.
One of the best ways to do a casual party is to make a beautiful board. Arrange a little bit of cheese and charcuterie with some lovely vegetables and pickles -- and voila! Then, there are the dips. This year I did a delicious roasted red pepper hummus to complement the other offerings. It was smooth and rich with a little bite from the Aleppo pepper -- it was perfect. All I did was take one pound of our hummus and add 1/2 of a large roasted red pepper, dried well on a paper towel and blended it right into the hummus in the food processor. Then, I added 1 teaspoon of Aleppo pepper and blitzed it to finish. I finished it off with a drizzle of fine extra virgin olive oil and we were ready to go.
I hope everyone reading this had a wonderful holiday weekend, however you celebrate!
