Almond Spread

Wish you could come to my house and I'd serve you some of this delicious dip. The name doesn't do the taste justice. It is a very versatile, creamy, tasty spread. I like to use this in place of mayonnaise.

Almond Spread- (compliments of From the Kitchen of Two Sisters Cookbook)
...this recipe can be used as a dip for chips, crackers, or vegetables. It can also be a spread for sandwiches or roll-ups.

3/4 cup whole, raw almonds
3/4 cup water
1- 1 1/4 cups olive oil
1 large clove garlic
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

In a high speed blender combine the above ingredients and blend until smooth and creamy.
Keeps well in the refrigerator for several days.

Thanks- we snapped it over Thanksgiving. We tried to get a family shot too, but we really need someone to arrange us. We looked kinda lopsided:)
