A lovely smooth blended dip full of flavour which goes exceptionally well with raw vegetables such as carrots, celery and summer salads. For this recipe we have served the dip along side hot potato wedges, the bite comes from the garlic and cracked black pepper with a hint of sherry vinegar. Great for the tapas table!
