Summer is all about the grill, isn't it? There's just something about cooking and eating outside and the taste of grilled food. You can use a grill pan in your kitchen, too, and I've done that plenty of times. But now this city girl has an outdoor grill as well!
My landlord just redid our tenant roof deck and there are now grills! Yay! Bring on all the grilled things starting with chicken because I love the taste of grilled chicken. And, of course, there needs to be grilled veggies too, and pita bread, and an amazing sauce.
So let's talk about that sauce. I made a smoky roasted red pepper dip with toasted almonds and the flavor combo is amazing. It's got a lemon tang and the smoky flavor from paprika and cumin. I also added some red pepper flakes although I tend to keep my spice level wimpy. Feel free to turn up the heat as much as you can stand it.
As usual when I'm creating recipes, I just turned to my pantry filled with Ziyad products and started playing around with the flavors until I got the balance just right. Summer is going to be delicious. Enjoy!
