Peppadew, goat cheese, and basil sauce

Peppadew peppers can be found in most salad bars and come in a light brine that really takes this sauce to a new level. I’ve substituted roasted red peppers for the peppadews but it’s just not as tasty! Let’s get into it:

The Recipe:

  • This recipe varies due to size of produce. Taste as you go.
  • 8-10 peppadew peppers
  • 2T peppadew brine
  • 2-3 oz goat cheese
  • 5-7 large basil leaves
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1-2T olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • A food processor (or blender, immersion blender, some knives and elbow grease…)


Blend all ingredients.

That’s it.

The olive oil is to help get the sauce blended, so adding more or less may be necessary to achieve your desired consistency. I like mine thick.

Taste it and adjust accordingly.

Use this sauce as a flavorful substitute for mayonnaise on a sandwich, on top of chicken, or as pasta sauce (pictured below with some nice hunks of chicken for a hearty winter meal).


Happy eating!
