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).
