Makes 2-1/2 cups / This fabulous dip is a healthy alternative to sour-cream-laden options. It’s great on pita bread, blue corn chips, or raw vegetables, such as celery and carrot sticks. Prep tip: If you can’t find blanched (skinless) almonds, combine them with the hazelnuts when covering with boiling water; when cool, skins will slip right off.
- Place hazelnuts in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Let sit until cool. Drain and rinse with cold water. Spread out on a towel to dry while assembling remaining ingredients.
- Combine hazelnuts and almonds in a food processor and grind finely. Add remaining ingredients and process until smooth. Transfer to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
